A man was injured after receiving a strong electric shock when he came into contact with an overhead power line on Tuesday on a construction site in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
The man was working from the platform of an H JLG 340AJ boom lift, rented from Sunbelt Rentals, which was located directly under the power lines. The local fire and rescue department arrived on the scene and were able to lower the platform to the ground.
The man received some attention at the scene before he was transported to hospital where his condition was said to be stable. The building site was shut down while officials investigate the incident.
