Bucket operator shocked by power line

An aerial-lift bucket operator suffered a shock and burns on October 3, 2020, in Weathersfield, Connecticut, after making contact with a power line.

A crew was trimming a tree near power lines when the bucket operator made contact with a live line. That party was taken to an area hospital to be treated for burns.

Eversource had to shut power off to the area to allow crew members to safely move their equipment, according to a WFSB-TV-DT Channel 3 report.
