Electricians and others who work with electricity put themselves in danger every workday. An electrical current is not something that should be messed with. Employees need to understand how to work around electrical cables and wires without getting hurt. But even experienced workers can get electrocuted or even killed. Tragically, this was recently the case for an Illinois man.
The man was working on a utility pole in Pekin, almost three hours outside Chicago. The chain of events is unclear, but the man was performing his job duties when he got electrocuted. The 35-year-old man from East Peoria later died from the incident.
