Man shocked by electricity at Punahou School

By Star-Advertiser staff

LAST UPDATED: 02:40 a.m. HST, Aug 29, 2013

A 68-year-old man apparently received an electrical shock at Punahou School about noon Wednesday.

Emergency Medical Services officials reported his condition to be serious, and said he fell from a ladder after the electrical shock.

A spokeswoman for the school said in a written e-mail that the man was a school electrician involved in an electrical accident.

The man was taken to the hospital where he was being treated and held for observation.

The school is looking into the circumstances of the accident, but did not release any further details.

“Our priority at this time is the well-being of our employee,” the school said.

Hmmm, a few months ago, an electrician (?) came to my condo to test a wall light switch. He stuck a tester in the wall, was thrown back hard against the opposite wall then fell on the floor, and said "Oy, that's the second time today!" Should I have reported this to the Star-Advertiser as a news story?
