A subcontractor in Holly Springs, North Carolina was working on the electrical system at the Utley Wastewater Treatment Plant when he was shocked and knocked unconscious. The electrical accident occurred just before 11am.
A town employee reportedly administrated CPR after the worker, age 34, stopped breathing and appeared to have no pulse. The injured worker is apparently an employee of Via Electric Co., but his name had not been released as of late Thursday afternoon. Paramedics were able to revive the injured worker before taking him to WakeMed.
The man was later flown to the Jaycee Burn Center at UNC Hospitals where he was listed in critical but stable condition.
