IL Electrical Power Worker Found Dead at Substation

BEDFORD PARK, ILComEd and Exelon officials are investigating an accident near a substation in Bedford Park that left an employee dead this afternoon.  It is unknown if the cause was an electrical accident.

A man in his 50s was pronounced dead at the scene of the work-related accident at 4:29 p.m. on the 5700 block of West 73rd Street in Bedford Park, according to a spokesman with the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

ComEd Spokesman Jeff Burdick said the man was employed by Exelon, the parent company of ComEd, but he refused to give any details about the man or his job description pending notification of the man’s family.

The man was found by another employee outside of the substation, Burdick said. He said officials are launching an investigation into the accident.
