BETHANY BEACH, Delaware (AP) — Two men in Delaware died on Monday after a strong wind tipped over a lift that was holding them about 120 feet in the air, authorities said.
State police said the men were installing an antenna on a water tower in Bethany Beach when a strong wind caused the lift holding them to tip over. The lift became tangled in surrounding electrical wires as it fell to the ground.
A 22-year-old man and a 23-year-old man, both from Puerto Rico, were pronounced dead at the scene. Authorities withheld their names pending notification of family members.
