Electrical Worker Survives Accident in Melrose

In April, an electrical worker was involved in a rooftop accident at Melrose’s Oak Grove Village. Police received a 911 call around 11:20am on Tuesday, April 14 reporting a possibly electrocution. Chad O’Clair, the twentysomething worker who was hit with 220 volts, was taken by ambulance to Massachusetts General Hospital for tests.

O’Clair is a resident of North Reading and an employee of the North Reading-based Electrical Dynamics Inc. Fortunately, O’Clair did not lose consciousness and was released from Massachusetts General Hospital later that day.

The construction company responsible for the project says that the cause of the electrical accident remains under investigation.

According to a representative, We’re obviously doing an internal investigation and I believe that OSHA [Occupational Health and Safety Administration] is now at the site and our folks are reviewing it [the accident] with them.”
