Line Employe Electrocuted In Pensacola

Clyde Cantrell Apparent Victim of High Voltage

Clyde W. Cantrell of North Ninth Avenue, a lineman for the Gulf Power Co., died early Saturday while working on a power pole at Alcaniz and Jordan Streets which carried a 11,000 volt power line. First reports from the area indicated that the victim was electrocuted.

Rescue crews of the company applied artificial respiration for more than an hour but their efforts were in vain.

The victim was rushed to Sacred Heart Hospital in a Fisher Pou ambulance where efforts were continued to revive him. He was pronounced dead at 9:25 a.m.

Gulf Power officials said their first reports were that Mr. Cantrell had been electrocuted. Later, after questioning workers at the scene they said the workers were uncertain as to the cause of death. They first saw the victim slumped in his safety belt. His position, they reported, was such that he could not have come in contact with the high power line.

According to the log of the Gulf Power Co., the accident occurred at 7:35 a.m. while Mr. Cantrell was working on a junction pole at the intersection. Roger Q. Scott, superintendent of operations for the power company said. How he came in contact with the high power line was not known immediately. Others in the line crew at the site lowered the unconscious man to the ground and began resusitation efforts immediately. These were continued while the victim was being rushed to the hospital and another Fisher Pou crew brought a pulmotor from the Naval Air Station to assist in the work.

Scott said working crews of the power company and doctors and nurses at the hospital did everything possible.

Mr. Cantrell is survived by a wife and children. Funeral arrangements will be announced later.

Gulf Power Man Is Electrocuted

C. W. Cantrell Dies in Hospital

The death of Clyde W. Cantrell, 40, of North Ninth Avenue, a lineman for Gulf Power Co., early Saturday morning was established as being by electrocution after examination by a doctor.

Dr. Paul F. Baranco, who examined Cantrell, said he suffered a "small burn over the heart." Another lineman, John Shaw, 701 North F St., who was on the same pole, also received burns about the hands.

Roger Q. Scott, superintendent of operations for the power company, said there was a great deal of confusion about the death and that it has not been investigated thoroughly.

High Voltage Line

Cantrell apparently came in contact with high voltage lines on a power pole on which he was working at Alcaniz and Jordan Streets. Scott said the pole carried both 11,000 and 4,000 volt lines, either of which would have been sufficient to cause death.

The accident occurred about 7:52 a.m. Saturday, about half an hour after the crew began work. Cantrell died at 9:25 a.m. at the Sacred Heart Hospital.

Funeral services will be L. D. McCarthur, J. R. Wallace, Melvin Pittman, Fred Williams, W. T. Kimbrough and James W. Stevens.

Active pallbearers will be C. C. Folk, J. F. Byrd, John Shaw, F. W. Sharp, Jack Robinson and Ed Johnson.
