Gardener electrocuted on Kadena Air Base

Date Posted: 2005-09-01

A 31-year-old landscaping specialist working in an elementary school parking area was killed Monday morning when his crane made contact with an overhead power line.

Officials say Tetsuya Hokama was killed instantly. He was using a crane to remove dead branches and tree limbs and put them in a truck when the crane arm struck the high voltage line seven meters off the ground. The power line had 13,00 volts surging through at the time.

The Onna Village native was taken to a nearby hospital, but was pronounced dead on arrival.
