A 24-year-old man was taken to the hospital after he came in contact with a power line.
Guam Fire Department spokesperson Kevin Reilly says they received a call for help at around 10:30 am Monday.
“Units from the Barrigada Fire Station and an ALS unit responded to 113 Ibanez Ln. Toto, for a 24-year-old male found unconscious/unresponsive,” said Reilly.
He says witnesses on the scene told emergency personnel that the man was trimming a lemai tree when he made contact with high voltage power lines and fell approximately 40 to 50 feet.
The victim was transported to Naval Hospital Guam and CPR was being conducted at the scene and en route to the hospital.
No word on the man’s current condition.
