February fifth, 23 year old Christina Lynn was found dead lying near the power pole in front of her home. Coroners reports now show burns on Lynn's brain.
Lynn called Flint Electric last Thursday to see how much it would cost to have the power restored. The GBI says Lynn was found later that afternoon. It appears she climbed the power pole and tried to use galvanized conduit to reconnect her home. Electricians say, they face hazards like this every day, and a novice should never attempt something so dangerous.
"Shock or electrocution is one of the dangers we face daily and everything and we're the guys who know this thing and so your novices, for a novice it's kind of dangerous," said Eric Walker, Albany Electric.
They say if you're doing work inside your home you should always make sure to turn off a breaker before beginning any electrical work and use a meter to make sure there is no electricity coming through the line. Funeral services for Lynn were held earlier this week.
