Lineman electrocuted in Sawyer Co.


WINTER, Wis. (AP) -- A utility worker died while trying to restore power in northern Wisconsin after weekend storms hit.

North Central Power says lineman Glenn Charles Parker of Radisson came in contact with a live wire and was electrocuted Sunday. Utility spokesman Dave Dahlberg says Parker was trying to pull up wires that were knocked down by strong storms near Winter in Sawyer County.

WEAU-TV reports Parker was a 1984 graduate of Eau Claire's North High School.
