Lineman Injured While Working Electrical Job

Workplace electrical shocks can result in a variety of severe injuries. Most commonly, these are heart injuries (including cardiac arrest), tissue degeneration, and severe burns.

The sensation of electrical shock and severity of injury differ depending on the voltage, duration, and point of entry. Some of the worst onsite shocks are not felt at all.

A Chattanooga lineman was involved in an electrical accident while working in Alabama on Tuesday.

The lineman, who family members identify as Holden Beck, is an employee of APL Power Services in Chattanooga and was working in Cullman County as an independent contractor for Cullman Electric Cooperative.

A spokesperson for Cullman EC says Beck was flown to UAB Hospital in Birmingham.

The spokesperson says the worker's injuries are severe and even life-threatening.

Thoughts and prayers go out to the injured worker and his family, and hope that he can recover from these terrible injuries.
