RIVERTON, Utah (ABC4) — Officials say an electrician was electrocuted Wednesday while working inside a Chick-fil-A restaurant in Riverton.
Josh Lee, a spokesperson for the city, said the contractor was “severely electrocuted” shortly before noon while working on a dishwasher at the Chick-fil-A location in the Mountain View Village shopping complex.
Emergency crews tried to resuscitate the man for roughly 30 minutes, but he was pronounced dead at the scene.
The man was a contractor and not directly employed by Chick-fil-A, Lee said. The man’s name has not been released.
Riverton police are investigating the incident.
