Man Clearing Tree Dies After Touching Utility Line 10-28-2010

Kent County Sheriff officials say a man clearing fallen trees near a downed power line in Boyne Township has been killed after he touched a live utility line.
Police tell The Grand Rapids Press the unidentified man died about 7 p.m. Wednesday.
An autopsy is expected by the Kent County Medical Examiner's Office.
Deputies said the man was employed by a company contracted to remove trees and debris. High winds in the last two days have left many west Michigan roads littered with branches.
A spokesman for Consumer's Energy referred the Grand Rapids Press to authorities.
No further details were released.
