Man from KCMO electrocuted at Kansas work site

ANDOVER, Kan. (AP) — A construction worker has died after being electrocuted at a Kansas work site.

Authorities say 38-year-old Darrell Harden of Kansas City, Missouri, died Friday when he was working at a site in Andover.

The federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration says he suffered fatal injuries when the lift truck he was operating came into contact with overhead power lines.

The Wichita Eagle reports that when emergency crews arrived they found him unconscious, near the truck, with power lines on the ground nearby. He was taken to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

OSHA says it’s investigating.
