Two employees were relocating security-monitoring equipment and associated wiring at a grocery store. One of the employees was standing on a desk working on the task when he contacted a 120-volt conductor. He received an electric shock and fell from the desk, landing on the floor, still gripping the conductor. His coworker, who was nearby in an aerial lift, heard a moan. He found the injured employee unconscious on the floor. The coworker kicked away the conductor and started cardio-pulmonary resuscitation. However, the injured employee died of electrocution.
