Texarkana Gazette - - STATE -

OK­LA­HOMA CITY—An Arkansas man who was elec­tro­cuted last month af­ter he jumped into a canal in Ok­la­homa City’s down­town en­ter­tain­ment district to try and save an­other in­di­vid­ual who had fallen in has been re­leased from a hos­pi­tal.

Bran­don Gann, of Fort Smith, Ark., had been at OU Med­i­cal Cen­ter in Ok­la­homa City since he was shocked Sept. 30 while try­ing to help Wes­ley See­ley.

See­ley, from Tut­tle, Okla., died af­ter he was elec­tro­cuted by wires from a bro­ken lamp­post.

Gann was re­leased from the hos­pi­tal


In a state­ment, Gann’s fam­ily says it wants to know what could have been done to pre­vent the ac­ci­dent.

Ok­la­homa City of­fi­cials say an elec­tri­cal in­spec­tion found the lamp post that elec­tro­cuted both men was grounded and cor­rectly con­nected.
