A tree trimmer was electrocuted while working in east Columbus, fire division rescue crews confirm to NBC4.
It happened around 1pm in the 6000 block of Forestview Drive near Revere Road.
Rescue crews on scene are working with American Electric Power and a third party to remove the worker’s body from a tree.
The worker is a member of a small father-son tree trimming business. All three family members were working on the task when the accident happened, the CFD spokesman said.
