Man Suffers Burns After Climbing Power Line in Alaska

A man in Wasilla, Alaska was severely burned after climbing a power line tower, according to Alaska State Troopers.

41-year-old Michael Naczi was transported to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle yesterday morning with second and third-degree burns over half his body.

Matanuska Electric Association reported a major power outage at 11:30 p.m. Tuesday.

About an hour later, troopers received a call from a man who said he climbed an electrical tower near Point MacKenzie.

After climbing 30 feet, Naczi was knocked off the tower when electricity from the power lines arced, troopers said.

Naczi then walked about a mile to a fire station, where he used the emergency box to call 911. The incident caused a two-hour power outage.
