A worker was fatally electrocuted on Monday at a motorway construction site near Neumarkt in the Upper Palatinate. The 21-year-old was loading a compressor on the A3 with the help of a truck-mounted crane when the crane boom apparently touched a high-voltage line, as the police in Regensburg announced on Tuesday. The young man lost consciousness and died a few hours later in a clinic.

The crane operator was slightly injured by the electric shock, it said. The Regensburg criminal police started an investigation. October 7, 2021 [German language article]
