Some employees were erecting concrete forms for retaining walls. One of the employees was guiding a concrete form suspended by a 16.3-metric-ton (18-ton) Grove RT 605 truck crane with a 21.3-meter-long (70-foot-long) boom. A second employee was about 12 to 15 meters (40 to 50 feet) away, drilling another form. The boom on the crane contacted a 19-kilovolt (phase to ground) overhead power line. The employee guiding the form was electrocuted. He died about 1 hour after the accident. The second employee received an electric shock and sustained burns on his left hand and on both legs. He was hospitalized for his injuries.
