Telehandler electrocution

A 29 year old farm hand was electrocuted yesterday while using a telehandler in the town of Gerang Gerung, Victoria - halfway between Melbourne and Adelaide - Australia.

According to Worksafe Victoria the man was removing hay or straw bales from a stack when the raised bale handling attachment came into contact with overhead power lines.

An investigation is underway. We will update this item if and when we learn more.
