Texas Cable Worker Injured in Electrical Accident

DALLAS, TEXAS –  A cable worker suffered severe electrical  injuries after he came in contact with a power line at the end of Marine Drive at Possum Kingdom Lake.

Rex Williams, of Rhome, Texas, working for a Decatur company contracted to Communicom Services, was working when he somehow made contact with the lines. 

Power was cut to the lines and nearby crew from United was dispatched to the scene. When the United crew got to the sight, Williams was still in the bucket, burned and incoherent.  William was then was transported by air to Parkland Hospital in Dallas with burns and other injuries. 

It’s unkown exactly what happened as Williams can’t recall the accident.
