Keys Energy worker electrocuted

Sheriff’s deputies and detectives responded to a home on Lundy Lane, Big Pine Key Thursday night to an electrocution.

Deputies Jaime Miranda and Andrew Hudson arrived at 7:20 p.m. at 29510 Lundy Lane. 29 year old Michael Euliss, Jr., who also works for Keys Energy Services, was on the roof of the home, administering cardio pulmonary resuscitation to the victim, 28 year old Joshua Yarbrough. The deputies climbed to the roof and took over performing CPR until rescue units arrived.

Using the Keys Energy bucket truck on the scene, Yarborough was brought down from the roof. Deputy Hudson continued CPR as Yarborough was lowered to the ground. The victim was then transported to Fishermen’s Hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Major Crimes Detective Manuel Cuervo was assigned to investigate the circumstances of Yarbrough’s death. Yarbrough and Euliss were on duty, working for Keys Energy Services at the time the electrocution took place.
