OSHA is investigating an Aug. 6 incident in which three men were killed when the scaffolding they were moving made contact with power lines, causing them to be electrocuted.
It was around 8 a.m. – the start of the workday for many people – when Trevor James Riddick, Gary Edward Wortman and Samuel Anderson were electrocuted and died. The men were constructing a metal building at Streamline Product Systems in Kountze, Tex.
Brandi Gana, the sister of Trevor Riddick, told 12 News reporter Brittany Rainville, “They just wanted to take a shortcut today and it cost them their lives. Their boss probably told them to go around [the wires].”
