The story below is a perfect example as to how a typical workday can change in a moment's notice.
A construction worker was hospitalized after he was shocked and fell 25 feet Wednesday morning when his scaffold apparently struck a power line, according to a police statement.
The 23-year-old Keansburg man, whom police did not identify, was operating a scaffold about 25 feet off the ground around 9:15 a.m. near the corner of Ocean Boulevard and Ocean Terrace when police said he may have crashed into a high-voltage power line. The man was shocked and thrown from his protective bucket, police said.
When first responders arrived, the man was conscious, but dazed and showed "visible signs of serious injuries as a result of the incident."
This hard-working individual had probably done this job countless times, yet, this one time, something happened, and it will forever alter his life.
What does he do next? Where/Who can he turn to for help?
These are the two most common questions we hear, and Eric, Randy, and Sarah are ready to answer them.
