MIAMI, Fla. (AP) - An FPL worker was hospitalized following an electrical flash at a downtown Miami office building.

An FPL spokesman says the worker was inspecting equipment at the SunTrust building Tuesday afternoon when electricity shot out, leaving the worker with minor burns. He was taken to a nearby hospital, where he was treated and released. It did not appear that electricity actually went through the worker.

After the incident, FPL shut down power for the 32-story building to investigate. Repairs were made, and power was restored less than two hours later.
