The Barbados Light & Power Company acknowledges the death of a male today in an incident of ‘alleged electrocution’ and expresses heartfelt sympathy to the family, friends and colleagues of the deceased.
This morning, safety personnel and crews from Light & Power responded to reports of an incident at Marshall Trading Limited located at Webster’s Road, Wildey, St. Michael. At 10:56 a.m., Light & Power de-energized its transmission lines in the area at the request of The Barbados Fire Service to permit an investigation. This resulted in a power outage to the areas of Wildey, Upper Collymore Rock and sections of the Pine. Electrical power was restored at 11:49 a.m. to the areas with the exception of the immediate area where the incident occurred.
Light & Power continues to work with the authorities from the Barbados Fire Service and the Barbados Police Force to probe the incident.
