Workers Electrocuted Setting Up Scaffolding

Three construction workers were electrocuted in Murrysville, Pennsylvania today while setting up scaffolding outside a home. Two of the workers died and the third suffered a burn on his leg.

The three had been working at the home all week long. As they were setting up the scaffolding, one of the beams got away from them. They tried to control it, but the beam hit a high-voltage wire. Murrysville Police Chief Thomas Seefeld believes all three had their hands on the beam when it touched the power line.

A pediatrician and nurses ran from the building next door to try to revive the men. The two who died were in cardiac arrest as they were transported to the hospital where they were declared dead. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration is investigating.

Workplace electrocutions, while uncommon, are a danger in many jobs. Construction workers bear the brunt of electrocutions at the workplace, although anyone who works around high-voltage power lines is at risk.

If you or a loved one has been electrocuted in a construction accident, please contact the Accident Lawyers Network to find an experienced injury lawyer in your area.
