PORT ORANGE, Fla. (AP) - A man doing electrical work at a Port Orange warehouse was reportedly killed when he touched a live wire.
The fire marshal reports that 59-year-old Wade Leonard Madole was working in the parking lot of NorthStar U.S. Food Service Monday. He and another man were taking apart the bases of light poles when Madole grabbed a bare wire and was electrocuted.
Officials say the other man was shocked when he tried to help Madole, but he should recover.
Northstar employees tried to revive Madole after he went into the full cardiac arrest. Firefighters transported Madole to a nearby hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
The federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration will investigate.
