UW-Madison Electrician Dies from Injuries

July 2011 – University of Wisconsin

A University of Wisconsin-Madison electrician involved in a suspected electrocution on Tuesday has died, according to authorities.

At about 4:15 p.m. Tuesday, UW and Madison police officers and the Madison Fire Department responded to a reported electrocution at the Humanities Building in an attic above Mills Concert Hall.

The employee was transported to UW Hospital and Clinics but he was not able to be revived. He was pronounced dead at approximately 5:15 p.m.

His name is being withheld until the completion of notifications of his family. Additional updates will be posted as they become available.

“Our thoughts and prayers are with this employee’s family, friends and colleagues,” says Alan Fish, associate vice chancellor for facilities.

The Employee Assistance Office has been in contact with the Facilities, Planning and Management arm of UW-Madison in order to provide counseling and support.
