HOLLYWOOD (CBSMiami) – A South Florida tree trimmer lost his life on the job Friday afternoon in Hollywood.

According to Hollywood Police, the worker was trimming trees outside a home at 2813 Dewey Street when he got too close to a power line and was electrocuted.

His body remained in the tree until rescue crews could bring him down.

A second worker suffered minor injuries.

The power was shutdown in the area, according to FPL, which affected about 25 customers. Power will be restored once authorities finish the investigation.
