On October 29, 2004, Employee #1 was working from a non insulated bucket truck, trying to raise the cable after it was hit by a trash truck the previous evening. Employee #1 was not wearing safety harness or safety gloves. At the time of the accident, Employee #1 was being lifted up on the cable line to take tension off of the line, so a coworker could tighten and raise the cable. Employee #1 came into contact with the primary 7200-Volt line and was electrocuted. The static distance from the cable to the ground was 14 ft 1 in. and from the primary line to the ground was 21 ft. A separation of 6 ft 11 in. was provided before Employee #1 started to lift the line.
