Accident leads to amputations


ONAWA (AP)--A 22-year-old Sioux Falls man is recovering in a Nebraska hospital after burns suffered in an on-the-job accident led to the amputation of both of his arms.

Lineman Brady Murphy was shocked late last month while working near Onawa, Iowa.

He also suffered facial burns. His brother Ben says Brady Murphy has undergone seven surgeries and likely will need more.

Both Murphys work for Highline Construction of Paynesville, Minn. Ben Murphy says no one knows how the accident happened.
