Electrical accident injures workers

 

On February 13th at 3:30 p.m. members of the Cranbrook RCMP responded to a complaint that multiple workers had been injured in an industrial electrical accident on Cranbrook Street.

Upon attending the Finning Canada compound on Cranbrook Street, officers determined that two men who had been assisting a mobile crane hook up some equipment near overhead power lines, were knocked to the ground following a bright flash of light. A 27 year old and 20 year old man were transported to the Cranbrook Regional Hospital with electrical injuries. The 27 year old man has since been released from hospital with minor electrical injuries while the 20 year old man has been transported to the Kelowna hospital and the extent of his injuries are still undetermined.

Investigation of the incident is being conducted by Worksafe BC. If anyone has any additional information about this incident  they can call the Cranbrook RCMP at 250-489-3471 or East Kooteney Crimestoppers (1-800-222-TIPS)
