Baseball pair electrocuted at kids’ game
A FLORIDA high school baseball coach and his wife have been killed by electrocution while they installed a new scoreboard, to replace one destroyed by a recent hurricane.
Coach Corey Crum and a group of baseball players and parents were putting up the scoreboard on Sunday afternoon, said Liberty County School board member Kyle Peddle.
Kyle said the coach was in “some kind of lift and he got into an electrical line”.
Mr Peddle, whose son is also on the team, said Mr Crum’s wife Shana came to her husband’s aid and was also electrocuted.
The couple died at the scene.
The couple’s son Chase was also injured.
Liberty County sheriff’s officials said in a Facebook post that team members were taken to the gym, where grief counsellors were available.
