A friend and neighbor of mine...about 1 block down the street...and a great guy. He was up in a lift he rented cutting tree down and somehow got his hand directly on a 23kV power line. He was sent to the university burn ward and they had to amputate his left arm and remove most of the muscle tissue in his back because it was too burned to save. He was doing OK for a few days, but eventually the shock from all the damage set in, and probably infection, too. He passed away Friday, and I know the whole neighborhood will miss that friendly, talkative, hard working character bouncing around in his old, green Ford pickup full of lawn and garden tools. Working full time at his day job wasn't enough for Mark...he did handyman things on weekends and also kept the strip of city property across the road mowed.

Please be careful around power lines. It only takes one slip.
