No mention of the landscaping business name, business owner, etc. It is possible the victim was a day laborer. News12 doesn't hold back info if the business is legitimate or if a person is white. They said nothing at all about this incident.

It's a really terrible thing to have happen, either way.

Aluminum ladders and electricity don't mix. That's why those who work with or within the vicinity of electricity must use a wood or fibre-glass ladder.
Illegal, legal, day laborer or professional, this guy had no training on his job, the environment, or the hazards. Seeing how he was employed by someone, and not working on his own house, OSHA is going to have a field day with his boss.
Hoping the homeowner won't get sued though.
