Climber Shocked 130 foot up on Tower!


I heard on Friday that a man who was working 130 foot up on a tower in Coopersville, Michigan, was shocked up on the tower. According to Ottawa County Sheriff a 22-year-old Lansing man, Eric Davis, with his crew was working on the tower when the wind blew his measuring tape into a high tension wire. His workmates helped him down and an ambulance treated him on the scene. Then they took him to a Hospital in Grand Rapids for farther treatment, mostly burns on his arms.

I am guessing he was doing either a survey or structural study.

If anyone has more information please let me know.
