The Associated Press reports that 39-year-old Robin Thomas was electrocuted
and killed at a tower site in northern Colorado. According to the local
coroner's office, the engineer was working alone, trying to install a transmitter and
test it at a site about 18 miles northwest of Red Feather Lakes, Colo.
"He apparently leaned into the wrong piece of equipment and was
electrocuted," the AP stated based on an account by Chief Deputy Coroner Diane Fairman
after an autopsy was performed.
Thomas was a partner in Radio Frontier Broadcasting and Blue Moose
Broadcasting, according to the AP.
