An autopsy will be performed on the man electrocuted Thursday at Mission Viejo High School, who was identified today as an Apple Valley Man, officials said.
Daniel Pohl, 23, was working at the high school on some scaffolding when he was found unresponsive, an Orange County Coroner's office press release says.
"Initial reports are that he possibly came into contact with electrical lines. An autopsy will be performed," the coroner's office posted on its website.
The call came in around 3 p.m., Orange County Fire Capt. Steve Concialdi told City News Service.
Another man was injured when he came to Pohl's aid, Concialdi told Patch. There were three men total working, and when the first was shocked, a second scrambled up to help him.
Meanwhile, a coach from San Juan Hills High, which was scrimmaging against Mission Viejo, also ran to help, Concialdi said. The colleague started to apply CPR, but then he stood up, hitting the back of his neck on the electrical wires.
He fell from the platform 25 feet to the ground, he said. However, it looks like he will pull through, Concialdi said.
As for the San Juan Hills coach, "luckily the coach wasn't injured. He kept his arms in, he stayed on the wood planks of the scaffolding and he did not touch the side rails."
The men were working for a construction company that was erecting scaffolding to eventually place a banner, he said.
Tammy Blakely, spokeswoman for the Saddleback Valley Unified School District, said the workers were not hired by the district.
The banner the scaffolding would hold is to publicize an event, she said.
"It’s under investigation on how the company was hired and who hired the company," Blakely said. "I don’t have information I can give you on that."
