CA Bystanders Electrocuted After Car Crash

Two women, who were trying to help car accident victims, are now dead themselves after the crash in Los Angeles lead to their electrocution.

FOX News Radio’s Jessica Rosenthal reports from Los Angeles:

Audio clip:

A woman lost control of her SUV Wednesday night, slammed into a fire hydrant and a light pole.  Authorities say water poured out from the hydrant, and the light pole left a live wire in the water.  When a woman went to go try to help the driver of the SUV, she was electrocuted.  Other people then tried to help her.

(Bystander) “They couldn’t help the woman on the ground because of the live wire.  I mean, it was obvious she needed aid, but nobody could do anything because of the live wire and the water.  It was horrifying, just horrifying.”

Another woman who tried to help was also electrocuted, and several others were injured trying to offer aid, but they are all alive.
