Irma Still Impacting Florida: Worker Dies After Electrocution By Low Wires

A Florida worker was electrocuted to death by low-hanging power lines due to Hurricane Irma. 

The accident happened Sunday afternoon and the worker was pronounced dead at the scene.

Sarasota County Emergency Services said the victim was trimming trees while working in a bucket and couldn't be reached until Florida Power and Light could come and turn off the grid. 

Hurricane Irma affected nearly every part of the state, and some two dozen deaths in Florida are attributed to the storm.
