Indiana Man Critically Burned In Power Line Accident

A man trying to install a CB antenna in a tree suffered third-degree burns over half his body when the antenna touched a power line in Brazil, Indiana, authorities said.

21-year-old Gary Long was critically burned when the CB antenna he was working on fell onto a power line, sending electricity through the antenna, shocking Long and burning the tree.

Long remained in critical condition yesterday at the Wishard Memorial Hospital burn unit in Indianapolis, where he was airlifted after the accident.

When emergency workers arrived at the accident scene, they found the CB antenna draped across the power line, the tree was charred from the fire and Long hanging onto a lower branch.

It took 10 to 15 minutes to lower Long from the tree, as Brazil firefighters waited for Cinergy/PSI workers to cut power to the line.

Sometimes it is imprudent to call something an accident. I think this could qualify as one of those times.
