Electric Current Passes Through Tree Branch & Shocks VA Worker

HENRICO COUNTY, VA – Henrico County police identified the tree-service worker who was electrocuted on Thursday as Brian Daniel Morris, 27, of Reva.

The accident occurred just before 9 a.m. in the 1500 block of Timbercrest Lane in the western part of the county.

A branch he was cutting hit a power line, and the electrical current passed through the branch and into him, police said.

Henrico police Lt. Eric Owens said the victim was employed by Williams Landscaping and Tree Service in Madison.

He was an experienced tree-cutter, but it was his first day on the job with his new employer, Owens said.
