Posted March 14, 1997

— A Raleigh construction worker was hospitalized after receiving a strong electrical shock Friday morning.

The man was working on the State Historical Museum building in downtown Raleigh when he apparently grabbed a live wire receiving a 110 volt shock of electricity.

He remained conscious, but was taken to Wake Medical Center for possible treatment.

Investigators say the wet weather was partly responsible for the accident.
