Power Company Worker Killed In Westfield



Westfield, NY (WBEN) -- New York State Police tell WBEN that a Town of Westfield BPU worker was fatally electrocuted Saturday afternoon.

Authorites tell us that a resident was cutting trees and accidentally knocked down a power line. The victim, William Boneburg, made arrangements to have a crew come out.

While watching, apparently he came in contact with a live wire. Boneberg was pronounced dead at the scene.
