A construction worker was electrocuted while working at a construction site at the Tugbungan Elementary School last Monday.

The fatality was identified as Reneboy Turno y Romaguira, 20 years old, single and a resident of Lipakan, Salug, Zamboanga del Norte.

Turno was rushed to a hospital but was declared dead on arrival by the attending physician.

Police said that Turno and his co-workers were preparing to install plain sheets on the roof of the building when the incident occurred.

While a plain sheet was being handed over to Turno, the object accidentally touched a grounded area which led to the electrocution.

Turno was a stay-in worker at the construction site.

His body was brought to a funeral parlor for post mortem examination.  (Dan Toribio)
