Shocked painter

16. October 2018 | Comments (0)

A man painting an apartment building from an aerial lift in Glen Rock, southern Pennsylvania, was badly shocked and suffered burns on Sunday, after coming into contact with overhead power lines.

It seemed that his back touched the power line while he was elevating the trailer mounted work platform to reach a new position on the wall. After touching the power line he is said to have slumped down into the basket of the platform. The rescue could not begin until the power was shut off, which took around 15 minutes or so.

Fire rescue crews then use a fire rescue platform to bring the stricken man down, so that he could be airlifted to a specialist a burn centre in Baltimore, Maryland. They stated that he was concious when loaded onto the helicopter.
