Accident Investigation Summary
Summary Nr: 201792652Event: 08/25/1999Electric Shock - Contact With Overhead Line Thru Boom
Employee #1 and his foreman were using a Link-Belt Crane (Model No. HTC814, Serial No. 59H3- 617) to place concrete level pads next to an abutment. A third employee was operating the crane. After they had placed about 12 pads, the foreman told Employee #1 to use a square pad for the end of the abutment. The square pad had been placed under a stack of regular pads. Employee #1 hooked the regular pads, which were on top of the square one, to a sling suspended from the crane. As he was holding the sling with his hands, the crane apparently contacted an overhead power line, and Employee #1 received an electric shock, which knocked him unconscious. When he regained consciousness, he felt his whole body was burning. He was transported to a hospital and then transferred to a burn center, where he was hospitalized for 24 days with severe burns on his hands and his right foot.
