(PENN TOWNSHIP) – An incident Thursday morning took the life of a Marcellus man.
Cass County Sheriff Richard Behnke says emergency personnel were called to the Sparks Cedarlee Farms in the 59,000 block of Gards Prairie Road in Penn Township just after 9:30 Thursday morning. They found that an employee helping to construct a new storage facility at the farm had been electrocuted.
The worker, identified as 19 year old Rocky Stoner, was moving a metal roof truss with another employee. Stoner was holding the steel truss while the other employee worked a forklift to help move the truss into position. During the process, the truss touched a nearby power line, electrocuting Stoner. The other employee immediately called 911 and rendered aid.
Stoner was taken to Borgess Lee Memorial Hospital in Dowagiac, and later pronounced dead. The incident remains under investigation.
