“Don’t forget to isolate the power before beginning electrical work” – that is the message we must take from a horrific incident that took place at a home in Eastwood in Sydney recently.
A 46 year old man was electrocuted while working under a house in Sydney’s northwest. His body had to be retrieved by fire crews who arrived on the scene after it was reported that a man was trapped under a house.
Fire crews isolated the power to the premises before proceeding to the basement to retrieve the man. He was already deceased.
