Four Workers Injured By Arc Flash

Fox 9 television in Minneapolis-St. Paul reported last week that four utility workers injured in an arc flash last Monday.

Witnesses said the most seriously injured worker was in a lift-bucket that was stuck close to the power lines. As neighbors called 911, the worker tried to strip off his clothes and was even tempted to jump to the ground. As coworkers lowered him back down, witnesses said it was clear that burns were covering much of his back and body

Last Tuesday it was reported that two of the workers remained in the hospital, but their injuries were not life threatening.
