Julio Martinez, 47, of Beaufort suffered burns to his hands and body while working on the air station's 2,volt runway lighting circuit. His co-workers had to perform CPR to keep him alive, said Arlene Mellinger, communications manager for Johnson Controls, the company Martinez worked for.
Just one week before, Cpl. Erik S. Hultgren died from electrocution while testing a 1,watt floodlight set on a generator. A memorial service was held Wednesday at the base. Two of Martinez's co-workers nearby revived Martinez, a former Marine. Mellinger said his vital signs were good and he was in critical but stable condition. Officials aren't sure what caused the shock, said air station spokesman Master Sgt. The incident occurred at about a. Johnson Controls has contracted with the air station for the past five months, working on operations and maintenance, Mellinger said.
Part of the contract includes working on the electricity and heating plant. Peck said there are civilian employees on the base. Johnson Controls has 47 employees on the base, Mellinger said. As electricity coursed through the rig, two men rushed to assist its driver, who had been hurled from his cab. One began administering CPR, but the rescue attempt went horribly awry when the second worker touched the still electrified crane, sending a deadly jolt through all three men, authorities said.
Other rescuers, terrified that they too would be shocked and killed, then had to stand by until the live wire was shut off by a utility, said George Strickland, general manager of the JDM Materials plant in suburban Philadelphia where the accident took place.
Late Thursday afternoon two of the victims were identified. The crane operator was Robert Forepaugh pictured, left side of picture , 68, the owner of the demolition company that was subcontracted by JDM Materials. One of the other workers killed was Forepaugh's nephew, George Frederick pictured, right side of picture , I don't know how long it actually took," Strickland said.
The a. Hours after the disaster, a 7, volt electrical line remained draped over its boom. Strickland said the three worked for a Bensalem company that had been hired to demolish an old structure at the plant.
Witnesses said the crane was backing up when it ran into the wires, Strickland said. Homes across from the construction site were evacuated so people would not enter the area around the electrocution because electricity goes into the ground.

A spokesman for St. Gobain said the worker was treated and released after about four hours at the hospital. The incident is under investigation, she said. AP — A well-drilling rig hit a high-voltage power line at a construction site, killing a father and son, authorities said. Martin Schafer, 49, and his year-old son, Benjamin, died in the Friday evening accident at the Mount Pocahontas housing development, according to the Carbon County coroner's office.
Their rig tilted on soft ground, causing it to hit the power line, police said. Colleagues said the hardworking pair were trying to finish a job after working all day. Last year, another man was electrocuted in Carbon County when he tried to pull his dog away from a power line that fell to the ground in Hickory Run State Park.
The accident was reported shortly after 2 p. Oakwood Road, a statement from the Franklin Police Department said, after the victim, a year-old man from Muskego, and two other workers had just set the pole into the ground. As the crew was lowering the boom on a utility truck, the boom touched a live wire, causing electrical current to run through the boom, the truck and a piece of equipment that was connected to the truck and which the victim was holding, the statement said.
Police did not release the man's name. We Energies spokeswoman Megan McCarthy said late Thursday she had no information on the accident, which is under investigation by the utility, the Franklin Police Department, the Milwaukee County medical examiner's office and the U.
Occupational Safety and Health Administration. Paul Psaila received a fatal electric shock when he touched a piece of metal carrying a volt current from a live electricity cable attached to the garage roof of a suburban Rosanna home unit on February 9, But outside the court, the victim's widow, mother of three daughters Marie Psaila, said she thought the punishment "grossly inadequate, given that what happened cost my darling Paul his life".
Judge Michael Strong in the Victorian County Court said work on installing the cable had been carried out by two qualified and experienced linesmen seven weeks before Mr Psaila died.
Insulation on the cable became damaged and a metal bracket "charged with electricity became a death trap". Mr Psaila died when he touched the bracket.
The judge said the two linesmen, who were not charged with any offence, were men of experience and their work involved, or should have involved, checking the connection. There was a need for electricity suppliers to realise that linesmen, however competent and experienced, will occasionally make mistakes with potentially lethal consequences, Justice Strong said.
It was clear that what was lacking was an independent system of inspection, the judge said. AGL was last week convicted by a jury of failing to ensure that people other than its employees were not exposed to health and safety risks.
The judge said it would be wrong to impose the maximum sentence because the breaches were not "blatant". After the sentencing, WorkSafe Victoria executive director John Merritt said: "This case supports WorkSafe's proposition that it is practicable to have a system for auditing and inspecting the installation of power cables and that doing these things can save lives. In this case, the actions of AGL Electricity put others at risk and resulted in a man dying.
The unidentified worker was taken to the hospital for observation.

In the final moments of his life, Robert Zulauf administered CPR to his nephew and ordered bystanders to move away from the deadly power line that arced and bowed just a few feet from a Circle K parking lot. Flames danced around Jordan Zulauf as thick black smoke billowed and his uncle worked to save him. Above the men, a Commonwealth Edison line crackled and hummed so loudly it could be heard over both an approaching police siren and the screams of horrified onlookers. Robert took a few steps toward his white utility truck, which he had parked along the road so he and Jordan could work on the telecommunication lines several feet below the ComEd wires. The bucket was extended about 6 feet off the ground and, according to one witness, a wire was touching its long metal arm. Robert, 32, was pronounced dead at the scene. His year-old nephew, Jordan, was flown from the northern Illinois town of Sterling to Rockford, where doctors amputated his arms and he remained in a coma for several weeks. Besides her two school-age children, she would soon become the primary caretaker to a newborn and an adult nephew who had to relearn even the most basic skills.
