A Culver Road man trimming trees at his home was stranded in a boom lift Friday night after a tree limb fell onto a power line, knocking it to the ground and onto the lift, authorities said.
The man was able to be lowered to the ground after the Oak Ridge Electric Department disconnected the power. The man was not injured, but he was a little cold, Oak Ridge Police Officer Christopher Wallace said.
The man appeared to have been trapped about 20-30 feet in the air for about an hour on a chilly Friday night.
The Oak Ridge Fire Department and Oak Ridge Police Department were at the scene, and they wanted to be sure the power was turned off because the line that was knocked to the ground, and lying on Culver Road near Dayton Road, was touching the metal lift, Wallace said.
More information will be added as it becomes available.
