Man dies after electrocution in Addison, 3-28-17

This from John Tulipano:

Firefighters from Addison and Lombard worked to free a victim who was trapped in a tree after being electrocuted in the area of Villa Avenue and Myrick today (3/28/17).

A 51-year-old man died and another was critically injured Tuesday afternoon after they were shocked by power lines while trimming trees in an Addison backyard.

Jose Fulgencio-Hueramo, of Melrose Park, was pronounced shortly before noon at Glen Oaks Hospital in Glendale Heights.

At about 11 a.m., Fulgencio-Hueramo and another person were cutting limbs in a backyard near Villa Avenue and Myrick Avenue in Addison where both individuals made contact with the power lines.

One person was thrown from the ladder adjacent to the tree and landed on the ground. The second person was secured in the tree. When ComEd turned off power to the lines, firefighters got them down from the tree. One was airlifted to Good Samaritan Hospital in Downers Grove.

“They were able to cut the power to the power lines, and at that point firefighters from Lombard and Addison went up there and were able to extricate the gentleman from the tree at that time,” said Joe Leone, the Addison fire chief.

Police said the victims appear to not be with a private tree-cutting service.

It was immediately unclear how the individuals got tangled in the power lines.

Addison Fire District updates

This from Tim Rightlander:

I checked with the Addison fire protection district to see the status of the tower ladder for sale and the 1990 Pierce engine, The response has been forward to you as well as the comments about going ahead with the purchase of a new engine.
Tim
The tower was sold last fall or early winter to a fire department out in New York State. The engine that you speak about is at Technology Center of DuPage on Swift road. They store it for us and with that they can use it to train the high school kids. It just went up for sale for $15,000 yesterday. It’s a 1991. We have received direction from the board to pursue a new engine and in fact we are almost done with the specification list. I anticipate that the specification list will go out to chosen vendors on Friday or early next week. The new engine will be replacing the one we are selling from TCD.
