The incident was reported around 3:15 p.m. near the football practice field located on Chrisanta Drive, said Chris Concepion with the Orange County Fire Authority.

The men, both in their 20s, were erecting a scaffold when they came into contact with the electrical wire, Concepion said.

One of the men was electrocuted and died at the scene. When the second man realized what was happening he tried to perform CPR on his co-worker, Steve Concialdi with OCFA said.

But when the worker stood up he also struck the power lines, Concialdi said.

His condition was later upgraded to serious.
