One man was rushed to hospital yesterday afternoon after suffering burns from electrocution.
Abbotsford Fire Rescue Service, British Columbia Ambulance Service and the Abbotsford Police Department responded after 4 p.m. on Sunday to a condomonium development on Mayfair Avenue between McCallum Road and Cottage Lane for a painter that had been electrocuted.
The painter had been working on a boom lift when it collided with live power lines. The man was brought to the hospital conscious and there were sporadic power outages throughout central Abbotsford as a result of this incident.
More to come.
