Girl, 11, Electrocuted By Light Pole

By Compiled From Wire Services

An 11-year-old girl wet from swimming was electrocuted when she stepped near an electrified light pole at a playground construction area.

Crystin Hess was waiting with a friend for a ride home Sunday when she stepped near some rolled-up metal fencing and the pole, which had current running through it.

Several adults pulled the girl away and tried to revive her. She was pronounced dead at a hospital.

Officials were investigating how the pole had become electrically charged.
