Two men electrocuted in Zephyr

Family and friends were slated to gather Tuesday evening in Riverside Park to remember two men who were electrocuted Saturday in Zephyr. The Saturday afternoon accident claimed the life of Zephyr resident Dexter Allan Jewell, 36, and his brother-in-law, Dino Lee Ogden, 38, of Brownwood, authorities said. The two men were trimming a tree from a raised utility bucket when a power line touched one of them from behind and almost instantly electrocuted both men. According to sheriff's department reports, the accident was witnessed by others who were able to call emergency personnel, including the Zephyr Volunteer Fire Department and Brown County Sheriff's deputies. Both men were pronounced dead at the scene.
