October 9, 2018

PALM COAST, Fla. (AP) — Authorities say two Florida construction workers were electrocuted when the equipment they were operating struck a power line.

News outlets report that 37-year-old Richard Hockaday and 39-year-old Gerald Anderson died Monday morning while working at a residential construction site in Palm Coast.

The Flagler County Sheriff’s Office says a concrete pump truck boom touched a high-voltage line, sending about 13,000 volts of electricity through the men.

Hockaday and Anderson worked for Nomad Concrete Pumping, a subcontractor hired for the construction project.

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration is investigating the incident.
