2 people hurt by high voltage shock from broken cable

TWO people were electrocuted early this morning when a high-voltage cable snapped at a construction site in the city's Jiading District. They were rushed to the hospital and are now in stable condition.

The accident happened around 1:35am when the power cable was torn apart, causing a bolt that hit a worker at the construction site on Dingbian Road and a passing three-wheeler driver.

Police said workers were installing a drainage pipe in the area with a lift crane which accidentally tore off the high-voltage cable.

Power supply in the area was not affected by the accident and its cause is still under investigation.
