City Utilities worker burned after 13,200-volt electrical shock

A City Utilities worker doing maintenance work at the Glenstone/Battlefield substation was severely burned Thursday when he contacted a live 13,200-volt circuit, according to CU.

CU spokesman Joel Alexander said the worker was taken by ambulance to Mercy Hospital, but didn’t yet know his condition.

Alexander said the worker had opened a cabinet inside the substation that he thought had been de-energized.

“He opened the doors and put testing equipment on it and it made a 13,200-volt circuit through him,” Alexander said. “He suffered severe burns.”

The incident occurred at about 12:45 p.m. Alexander said CU has begun an investigation to determine how the accident happened.
