Man in critical condition after tree trimming turned into electrical accident

HENDERSON, TX (KLTV) -

HENDERSON, TX (KLTV) - An East Texas man is in a Dallas hospital after he was injured during an electrical accident Thursday in Henderson.

Keith Freeman, 53, of Rusk County was working on a power line in the 200 block of Glendale Avenue. Henderson Police are still investigating, but they say it looks like a complete accident.

"A crane that extends out over, they had a cable on it, and a ball and hook on the end," explained Lt. Craig Sweeney, with Henderson PD. "It appears that the subject that was injured grabbed on to the cable while it was in contact with the power lines."

Freeman is listed in critical condition.
