Construction worker electrocuted

Bangalore, Jan 4, 2014, DHNS:

A construction worker was electrocuted and another sustained injuries after the two came in contact with a live wire at a work site in Anandnagar on Friday noon.

Kiran (30) and Kumar (25) were working as barbenders at the third floor of a building. The long iron bar which they picked up came in contact with a high-tension wire next to the building. Both suffered severe electric shock and were rushed to Baptist Hospital. They were later shifted to Victoria Hospital where Kiran succumbed to his injuries.

The condition of Kumar is stated to be critical. Kiran hailed from Andhra Pradesh. Hebbal Police have registered a case of death due to negligence against the owner of the building and the contractor.
