This makes no sense. Electrocution is death by electricity. There is no reason to take the person for medical care if he is deceased. We pray the report is just plain inaccurate and that there was not another accidental death in Tioga County.

Why do people have to be so technical on here? Nobody said he was deceased. The man received a shock by electric wires. Does that suit you?
How about, "Prayers for this man that he doesn't die or have any disabling injury from this terrible accident."

To poster 12:35. You are so very right. It didn't say that this person was deceased. Not all people die from being electrocuted. I hope he will recover and prayers go out to him and his entire family.

Actually I think the comment at 11:27 makes a lot of sense. The report tells of a fatality due to electrical shock. There not gray area in that. "Nobody said he was deceased," you write. You better read it again.

I made the mistake of reading this string of comments. My gosh, you people, grab a dictionary:
Electrocute: "to kill with electricity; electrocution is death caused by electrical shock."
The person who put the comment on here was not being insensitive but was pointing out that the terrible news (and the headline) of an accidental death might not be true, praise the Lord.

The incident was posted as it was dispatched to the fire/EMS responders. The update to the report indicates the man was being resuscitated, suggesting that at least one of his vital signs was absent. Fortunately the man was resuscitated and rushed to a trauma center. We hope the man will recover from the accident.

Okay so the report was that he died. The report was inaccurate. He had not died. Pretty simple, really. He was not electrocuted. It's a simple case of the dispatcher not knowing what the word means, similar to if a person was injured in a fight and the report said he was killed in a fight because the dispatcher thought "killed" meant "injured." Pretty simple, really. I'm glad it was corrected.

Thank you Jim.

4:20 you nailed it. Dispatcher should not have reported this as a fatality. Is there any news on the identity of the person and how he is doing? These utility workers give their all under sometimes really tough conditions and we should not take them for granted.

Well , I for one, read it again and nohwere did I see the word fatality or that he died. So YOU go back and read it again 1:10.

It's possible to be electrocuted and resuscitated which is what happened
