A lineman was killed this past Wednesday morning while working on power lines near Fairmont, North Carolina. After the man was injured, he was rushed to the Southeastern Regional Medical Center, where he later died. The Robeson County, North Carolina Sheriff’s Office received a call shortly after 10:00 am from East Coast Electrical Construction about a lineman being electrocuted. A witness said the lineman may have crossed the wrong wires.
The Sheriff’s Office is investigating the incident, but they believe it was accidental. The lineman’s name has not yet been released, but was a contractor employed by East Coast Electric of Pembroke, North Carolina. East Coast Electric is a company that works all along the East Coast, with their main office in the Baltimore, Maryland area.
