Two construction workers injured in Renton, Washington by high-voltage line

KiroTV.com reports that one worker sustained burn injuries over the upper portion of his body and one worker received minor injuries after their equipment hit a 115,000 high voltage line in a construction accident in Renton.

The report said the two men were painting a building on Oaksdale Avenue on Monday afternoon when the accident occurred. The two painters were in a lift bucket and equipment hanging from the bucket struck the line.

The construction worker who was the most seriously injured was rushed to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle.

Puget Sound Energy spokesman, Andy Wappler, said that the accident caused a power outage in areas of Renton and Tukwila, including the Southcenter Mall but power was restored not long after the accident.
