The family of a San Diego man taken to the hospital after he was shocked by a power line says he loves his job as a Lineman.
Scott Crummy was injured on Monday when he made contact with an electrical line while working in one of the baskets in a San Diego Gas & Electric (SDGE) vehicle.
The SDG&E employee was transported to UC San Diego Medical Center for treatment.
“I am thankful for our family, his IBEW Brothers and our friends who have shown us so much love and support as we sit by Scott’s side,” Crummy’s wife Amy said in a statement Thursday.
On Wednesday, the company released the following statement on Crummy’s condition which, in part, read:
“The SDG&E family continues to have positive thoughts for one of our linemen who was seriously injured on Monday. We were heartened by his change in condition yesterday from critical, to critical but stable. Please keep our lineman and his family in your thoughts and prayers.”
Crummy’s wife said he is the “best Dad and husband” and asked for prayers and privacy for her family.
