Live wire kills roof fixer, burns security guard


DASMARIÑAS CITY: One died while his companion survived electrocu-tion while they were fixing their house roofs in Dasmariñas City in Cavite.

Police investigators identified the casualties as Renato Relina of Barangay Langkaan 1, and John Buendia, a security guard of Viaberde Barangay San Agustin 2, in this city.

At about 6:45 p.m. while both were waiting for the rain to halt, they decided to patch up the leaks of Relina’s house. As they were mending the roof, they accidentally touched an open livewire connected to the main switch. Both were jolted and fell off the roof.

Their relatives rushed the two to Asia Medical Hospital here; attending physicians pronounced Renato dead on arrival while John currently recuperates from burns to different parts of his body.
