Accident Investigation Summary
Summary Nr: 200604528Event: 04/28/2010Electric Shock - Direct Contact With Overhead Line
A power line worker employed by an electric cooperative was in an aerial lift, disconnecting a 7200-volt overhead power line. The employee apparently contacted the power line, received an electric shock, and lost consciousness. When a coworker did not get a response from the worker in the aerial lift, the coworker used the lower controls on the aerial lift to lower the injured employee. The coworker administered cardiopulmonary resuscitation and used an automated electronic defibrillator supplied by an onsite inspector from the cooperative. Emergency medical services arrived on the site and transported the injured employee to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead. He had been electrocuted.
