Some employees were installing ductile iron pipe. Two of the employees were holding and guiding the pipe as an excavator moved it into position. The excavator contacted a 2400-volt overhead power line. Both employees received electric shocks, and one of them lost consciousness. A passing emergency medical services team received the emergency call and provided medical assistance. The team used a defibrillator and revived the unconscious worker, who was hospitalized for his injuries.
