“It’s not just you,” Eddie Black stressed Wednesday at Owen Electric’s construction safety and communications meeting.
It’s been more than a quarter century since Black nearly lost his life while working as a lineman for an electric cooperative in Kentucky.
As he attempted to re-conductor two new power lines, a terrible accident occurred when 7,200 volts of electricity surged through his body. As he worked, an older, sagging line contacted two new lines.
As a result of the incident, Black lost both arms.
