Two men shocked when platform truck makes contact with power line

Wethersfield, CT – Two men cutting down a tree were seriously injured after the platform truck they were using made contact with a power line. Firefighters arrived to the scene and found arcing wires on the ground and both workers badly hurt. It was unclear if the men had been hurt from electrical contact, the 20 foot fall from the platform, or both. The men were taken by ambulance to a nearby hospital with injuries that did not appear to be life threatening. The accident left hundreds of Eversource customers without power. The two victims were employees of a private contractor hired to take down a tree on the property.
