    FORSYTH COUNTY, Ga. - Two workers were injured Wednesday at a construction site in Forsyth County, authorities told Channel 2 Action News.

    The incident was reported at 9 a.m. in the Mosscreek Estates subdivision in Forsyth County. 

    "Essentially, they were burned," Fire Chief Jason Shivers said.

    The men who were working on a home were putting up the frame and the roof using a crane. The crane hit high voltage power lines.


    "Immediately, it electrocuted the piece of equipment, and thus, the two workers who were working at the base of it, both those workers, both adult males sustained serious life-threatening injuries," Shivers said.

    Both workers were airlifted to Grady Memorial Hospital with life-threatening injuries.
