A crew of workers were trying to move a huge vessel recently built in the streets of Chicxulub Puerto when one of the men was electrocuted.
The incident occurred when Luis Canché, 34 years old, raised an electricity cable for the ship to pass.
The man, seeing that the ship would not pass through the high voltage cables, decided to lift the lower one. However, when making the maneuver, his head made contact with other cable above, which caused him to receive a powerful electric shock. In the following video you can see how sparks come out and then the worker vanishes.
The incident occurred on Calle 33 of the Benito Juarez neighborhood, near the school with the same name, better known as “La Federal”, in Chicxulub Puerto, Yucatán.
The subject survived the shock, but his companions were afraid to move him. They intercepted an SSP police car, and finally, an ambulance transferred the victim to the CEMA hospital in Progreso.
The tractor that moved the ship was parked in the place where the accident occurred, flagged by agents of the municipal police of Progreso.
