One person electrocuted, one injured at construction site near Milwaukee

One person was electrocuted and another person injured Tuesday morning at a construction site near 84th Street and Layton Avenue near Milwaukee, police said.

It happened behind the Penny Mustard store.

When emergency workers got to the scene, they were able to transport one victim to Froedtert Hospital. They were unable to get to the second victim until We Energies turned off the power.

That person was pronounced dead at the scene, police said.

WISN has learned the victims were not We Energies workers.

This story will be updated as more details become available.
