Lake Charles –
Yesterday morning at approximately 8:50 a.m. the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office was dispatched to Elliswood Drive in Sulphur in reference to an accidental death. When deputies arrived they discovered Edward D. Diaz, 47, DeRidder, deceased. During further investigation it appears Diaz was working for an electric company up in a bucket truck when he unintentionally brushed up against an exposed power line, which electrocuted him. He was pronounced dead at the scene. Foul play is not suspected, the death appears to be accidental.
