BELLE GLADE, Fla. –– A man is being flown to Delray Medical Center this morning after he suffered an electric shock, a spokesman said.
Palm Beach County Fire Rescue crews were dispatched to 227 Northwest Ave. L, west of North Main Street, just before 9:30 a.m. in response to a reported electrocution, said fire rescue spokesman Capt. Don DeLucia.
The man, whose identity has not been released by authorities, was in a boom truck when he encountered power lines and had an "electrocution issue," DeLucia said.
The man is stable and does not have life-threatening injuries.
He is being taken to the hospital by Trauma Hawk out of precaution, DeLucia said.
