A Madison County man critically injured in an electrical accident on July 3 at a Georgia Power substation near Jefferson has died from his injuries.
Scot Reese Parr, 40, died a week after the accident on July 10, according to his obituary. Jackson County public safety director Steve Nichols confirmed that Parr was one of two men injured in the incident.
At the time, Nichols reported that two men came in contact with high voltage electricity while doing contract work on an electrical system on Valentine Industrial Parkway.
Parr became trapped inside a transformer box at the substation until Georgia Power crews could de-energize the electricity and he could be removed. He was taken by helicopter to Grady Memorial Hospital, Atlanta, with multiple third degree burns to his upper torso. Parr was listed in extremely critical condition on the scene.
