Seattle, WA — There was an accident on Wednesday of this week (July 8, 2015) that injured 3 City Light workers with Seattle. The workers were part of a construction crew that was installing a ground rod inside a substation. Something went wrong as they were working and their equipment caused an electric arc from the power line under the ground.
1 worker fell off his ladder, about 20 feet off the ground, while 2 others were burned by the electric shock. All 3 workers were rushed to a hospital, but were said to be in stable condition as of Wednesday night. One of the workers had 1st-degree burns.
The cause of the accident is still being investigated, but police also noted that it caused a power outage in the area of 23rd Avenue and Pike Street, which is where this took place.
More details are being released later.
