Cassville, Wis. teen dies from electrocution


Wednesday morning, at 8:30 a.m., Grant County officials received a 911 call from the home of Jacob and Jessica Hauk in the village of Cassville, Wis. The couple reported their son, Evan, 13, had been accidentally electrocuted and was lying unconscious in the yard.

Cassville EMS responded and transported him to Grant Regional Health Center, where the Grant County Coroner's Office pronounced him dead.

Sheriff's Deputies investigated and found Evan had been in the yard, shocking worms with a 110 volt electric prod while barefoot, and that's what caused the lethal shock.
