Two Workers Electrocuted in Access Platform | Construction News

Bourbon County, Ky.—Two workers who were repairing a chimney at a home died of electrocution when their boom lift hit a power line. It appears they swung the lift and one of the men came into contact with a power line, killing both of them. The sheriff said the two were apparently coming down from the chimney when the accident happened. The men were found by utility workers sent to investigate a power outage. Part of the lift was on fire when the utility workers arrived. –
