On August 6, 2002, Employee #1, a pipeline crew member, and coworkers were moving an excavator underneath a 7,200-volt power line when the boom contacted the neutral line. The excavator stopped, and Employee #1 climbed up on the boom to lift the neutral line and allow the excavator to move foward. During this process, one of his shoulders contacted the primary power line and he received an electric shock. Employee #1 fell approximately 15 ft from the boom to the ground. He was hospitalized and treated for electrical burns, lacerations, contusions, and a compressed vertebra, which left him paralyzed from the waist down.
