Lincoln Lineman
Critically Burned
In Cable Contact


LINCOLN, Ill (AP). - Paul Ader-
man, 58, a lineman, was critically
burned Sunday night when a
wrench attached to his belt came
in contact with a 6,900-volt cable.
A fellow workman for the Cen-
tral Illinois Electric and Gas Co.,
said Aderman's clothing was set
ablaze in the mishap which oc-
curred on a building in downtown
Lincoln.
Power was shut off as an emer-
gency measure shortly after the
short circuit occurred about dusk.
The power company was unable
to restore electric service for 90
minutes after the shut off because
of mechanical difficulties

LINEMAN BURNED

Lincoln Man in Critical Condi-
tion; Power Shut Off

Lincoln, May 27 (AP)

A lineman was critically burn-
ed on a 6,900-volt power cable at
dusk Sunday when a wrench at-
tached to his belt apparently came
in contact with the wire.
The resulting short circuit and
an emergency power cut off Lin-
coln from the main power plant.
The injured workman was Paul
Aderman, 58, a veteran employe
of the Central Illinois Electric and
Gas Co. in Lincoln.
Morrell Deibert, of Mount Pu-
laski, who was working with
Aderman on the high voltage line,
told police Alderman's wrench
struck the line. Deibert said an arc
of electric current surrounded Ad-
erman, setting his clothing afire.
Deibert and a passerby were
able to pull Aderman away from
the line and extinguished the fire in
Aderman's clothing. Deibert suf-
fered burns on his fingers.
Aderman was burned over his
entire body and was reported in
critical condition at a Lincoln hos-
pital.

Blaze Starts as Wrench Shorts 6,900-Volt Cable

Power Line Fire Burns Lincoln Man
Lincoln, May 26 (Staff)

A power company serviceman,
standing atop a ladder while re-
pairing a 6,900-volt power line,
was critically burned today when
a wrench, which apparently con-
tacted the damaged wire, created a
short and set his clothes afire.
In critical condition at Lincoln
Memorial Hospital here is Paul Ad-
erman, 58, of Lincoln. Burned
about the hands while rescuing
him was Morrell Deibert, 54, of
Mount Pulaski, his helper.
The entire city was without elec-
tricity minutes after the accident
happened, but power was restored
after an hour and a half. Both hos-
pitals here were operating on em-
ergency equipment during the fail-
ure.
Witness at the accident scene
said Aderman was standing on a
ladder atop a Central Illinois Elec-
tric and Gas Co. truck and repair-
ing a damaged line.
The line damage was located in
the alley on Walnut Street between
4th and 5th streets. The wire runs
through the branches of a tree at
the point of the accident.
The short which touched off the
fire was apparently caused when a
wrench, swinging from Aderman's
belt, contacted the wire.
Deibert, who said "It looked
like an arc of fire around him
(Aderman)," raced part way up
the ladder and brought Aderman
to the ground.
Deibert, Dave Shay and George
Hoagland, both of Lincoln, were
able to extinguish the burning cloth-
ing. Hoagland, also an employee of
the utility company, and Shay were
watching the repair operation
when the mishap occurred.
Another bystander, Delbert
Freeman, of Lincoln, used the ra-
dio-telephone in the truck to noti-
fy the power plant. Officials there
cut the main circuits to the city.
Hospital clocks stopped at 6:20
p. m. and power was restored after
and hour and a half.
Aderman suffered second and
third degree burns over 65 per cent
of his body, hospital officials said
tonight.
Most of his clothing was burned
off and he was unconscious for a
short time after the accident.

Lineman Critically
Burned at Lincoln

6,900 Volts
Set Worker's
Clothing Afire


LINCOLN - (PNS) - A Central
Illinois Electric and Gas Co. line-
man was critically burned about
6:30 p. m. Sunday by a 6,900 volt
electric line on which he was
working. A wrench in his tool belt
apparently came in contact with
the line.
The victim, Paul Aderman, 58,
was reported in very critical con-
dition at Abraham Lincoln Mem-
orial Hospital Monday morning,
with second and third degree
burns on 65 per cent of his body,
legs and neck.
CLOTHING CATCHES FIRE
Witnesses said Aderman was
working atop an extension ladder
on the rear of the utility com-
pany's truck at the time. He was
knocked out by the shock and his
clothing burst into flame.
A bystander, Delbert Freeman,
who had been watching Aderman
work, called the electric company
over the utility truck's two-way
radio and ordered power cut off.
Morrelll Delbert, 54, who was
working with Aderman, George
Hoagland and Dave Shea, who
live near the scene of the mis-
hap, removed him from the lad-
der.
Diebert burned his hands put-
ting out the fire on Aderman's clothi
ing.
POWER CUT OFF
The accident, which happened on
Walnut street between Fourth and
Fifth streets, was the second such
mishap for Aderman, who was
similarly burned 30 years ago.
Lincoln was without electric ser-
vice for about two hours, and
physicians at the hospital treated
Aderman while working under
lights furnished by an emergency
power unit. Full power was re-
stored throughout the city about
8:30 p. m.
