Mar­ket sweeper in Mal­abon City elec­tro­cuted


A stay-in mar­ket sweeper at the Mal­abon Cen­tral Mar­ket was elec­tro­cuted on Wed­nes­day evening.

Ra­mon Sanchez, 35, was sweep­ing in the mar­ket when he ac­ci­den­tally touched a live wire con­nected to a store.

Po­lice are try­ing to de­ter­mine if the store has a le­gal elec­tric con­nec­tion.

He sus­tained mi­nor burns but died on the spot, in­ves­ti­ga­tors said.

Sanchez has been a stay-in sweeper in the said mar­ket for many years. (Ed Mahilum)
