PASCO, Wash. - The Franklin County sheriff's office says a farm worker was electrocuted when an aluminum irrigation pipe he was moving contacted an overhead power line.
Sgt. Jim Dickenson said deputies found the body of Eloy Cordero-Guzman on Wednesday in an alfalfa field in the north part of the county.
The irrigation pipe was 29 feet long and had a burn mark on it.
Officials say the power transmission line carried a current of about 7,000 volts.
