Electric Shocks Claim 2
In Separate Accidents

Special to The Tribune

KEARNS — A 34-year-old Kearns man, attempting to mount a television antenna on the roof of his home, was electrocuted Saturday about 5:05 p.m.

Pronounced dead on arrival at the Valley West Hospital was Raymond L. Welker, 4516 W. 5500 South.

Deputy Sheriff Ronald R. Kilpatrick said Mr. Welker was working with a friend, Don Silcox, 21-5th Ave., Midvale, when the accident happened, but Mr. Silcox escaped injury.

Deputy Kilpatrick said Mr. Welker and Mr. Silcox were on the roof of Mr. Welker's home working with the antenna when a gust of wind caught the aerial and blew it east off the roof onto power transmission lines. Holes were burned in the hat Mr. Silcox was wearing, but he was not hurt.
