GATESVILLE, Texas (KWTX) – A worker who was shocked when the lift platform he was using to reach a sign hit a powerline Monday afternoon in Gatesville was flown to an Austin burn center.
The worker, whose name was not released, was using the lift just after 4 p.m. Monday to access a sign at the corner of East Main Street and North 24th Street when the platform hit the electric line.
After the power was shut down, Gatesville firefighters used a bucket truck to reach the worker.
No further details were available Tuesday.
