Injuries Sustained Due to Electrical Accidents Should Never Be Taken Lightly

Electrical accidents are the cause of 5-10% of traumatic work deaths, ranking fourth behind falls and punctures for workplace-related mortalities. 

From Fox13news.com

A worker was badly injured when he was shocked by power lines in Sarasota at around 3:45 p.m. Wednesday.

The victim has been identified by loved ones as 23-year-old Omri Snow.

When crews got to the scene, they say Snow's lift truck was engulfed in flames.

Investigators say he was hanging banners for a private contractor on light poles but somehow came into contact with power lines.

He had to be rescued from the lift, which was 20 feet in the air and engulfed in flames when crews got to his location on Lorraine Road near Fruitville Road.

He was badly burned and had to be flown to the hospital.
