A Mt. Carmel, IL public utility company worker is dead, and his partner is in a Louisville hospital Tuesday.
Both were working about two o'clock Tuesday morning trying to get power back on for the Mt. Carmel area. Forty-five-year-old Rick Henson was apparently electrocuted when he came in contact with a live power line. Fifty-year-old Kenny Kiefer was seriously hurt in the accident and rushed to a Louisville hospital.
