A man working on a power line was shocked Wednesday but was in stable condition that evening.

The man, in his 50s, is a contract worker for Pike Electric Inc. out of North Carolina. He was erecting new poles near the in-tersection of Thomas Jefferson Parkway and Garland Lane, near the border of Albemarle and Fluvanna counties, when he was shocked, according to Albemarle police Sgt. Darrell Byers.

When shocked, the man was about 30 feet in the air in a raised bucket truck, according to Byers.

The bucket was lowered to the ground and co-workers gave him CPR until emergency crews arrived. He was conscious when paramedics arrived and flown to the University of Virginia Medical Center.

Police did not release the man’s name Wednesday.
