One person died this evening in Lake County after reportedly being electrocuted.

Scanner traffic that began around 5:20 p.m. indicates that a victim was down after being electrocuted in Lucerne near the Sande Beach Mobile Home Park.

Initial reports warned that powerlines could be down in the area. Persons on the scene found no indication of lines down and attempted CPR. Sadly, the victim was pronounced dead at the scene.

We will be following up with the Lake County Sheriff’s Office for more information about the circumstances surrounding the incident. We want to thank the On the Scanner Lake County Facebook page for its initial coverage of the unfortunate event.

I like to think of myself as a reporter for the Average Joe. Journalism has become a craft defined largely by city dwellers on America's coasts. It’s time to take it back. I have been an Emerald Triangle resident since 2006 and this is year ten in Mendocino County. Please, email me at matthewplafever@gmail.com if you know a story that needs to be told.
