Man Killed By High-Voltage Equipment

PRINCESS ANNE, Md. (AP) — Authorities say a man has been killed in a blast while apparently trying to steal metal from an electrical box at the Princess Anne Industrial Park.

Police say the man was badly burned by high-voltage equipment at an empty building on Wednesday afternoon. The victim has not been identified.

Police says the person may have been trying to steal copper or other metals at the time. Princess Anne Police Chief Scott Keller says there have been several metal thefts recently at the building.

Delmarva Power says the incident temporarily knocked out power to other nearby commercial buildings.
