A construction worker, Mr Rocky Stoner, has been electrocuted on a construction project on a farm in Penn Township, Cass County, in the U.S. state of Michigan.

The accident occurred on Thursday, May 23 on popular local Sparks Cedarlee Farms on Gards Prairie Road.

Cass County Sheriff Richard J. Behnk said that Stoner, 19, of Marcellus, Michigan was holding a steel truss while another employee was moving it into position with a forklift when the truss brushed a nearby power line, electrocuting Stoner.

The duo was working on a new storage facility on the farm.

Although other employees rendered first aid and dialled 911, Stoner was confirmed dead on arriving at Borgess-Lee Memorial Hospital in nearby Dowagiac.

The Sheriff’s Office said it has launched investigations into the incident.
