Two construction workers in Brookhaven were seriously injured when their scaffolding partially collapsed and struck a nearby powerline. Carlos Moran was severely electrocuted as a result of the accident. The strength of the electrocution was powerful enough to stop his heart. A police officer, Sarah Miller, was luckily near the scene and performed emergency resuscitation using an Automated External Defibrillator. She was able to restart Moran’s heart and save his life.

The Law Offices of Nathaniel F. Hansford, LLC has taken the case for Moran and his family. It is believed at this time that faulty scaffolding construction led to its unpredictable collapse, throwing Moran and the other worker into the powerlines. With a full investigation of the evidence at hand, it might be found that Moran’s employer could be held accountable for failing to supervise the site.
