Another electrocution

A man died in Oakvale, West Virginia yesterday after he came into contact with an overhead power line while installing a new fibre optic cable from the platform of a utility/ bucket truck. The man has been identified as Daniel McGrath, 24.

The fire and rescue services could not reach McGrath, until staff from American Electric Power arrived to shut down the power and confirm that it was safe.
