Man Suffers High-Voltage Electric Burns at Berks County Power Plant

Local news sources indicate a man has suffered burn-related injuries in a workplace incident at the Birdsboro Power Plant. A news article about this developing story is available here.

A construction worker who was shocked after coming in contact with a 22,000-volt electric line was taken to a nearby hospital after suffering third-degree burns to the side of his face. The accident took place when the man became trapped inside a compartment at the power plant.

First responders—including local fire and rescue workers—arrived at the Birdsboro Power Plant on Armorcast Road and used an aerial bucket truck to rescue the victim from atop one of the plant’s structures. A medical helicopter was sent to the scene to transport the victim to a nearby trauma center. Investigators have yet to release any updates on the man’s condition.
