Incident #1: 7 Feb 2019 in Hughesdale Vic.

27 yo roadside tree-feller electrocuted by overhead power-lines.  Link

Incident #2: 11 Feb 2019 in Moorebank NSW

24 yo roofing contractor electrocuted when making contact with nearby HV lines. Link

 

That's two fatalities in less than a week, with the same issue - proximity to power lines and (possibly) a lack of caution & proper procedures. Please TAKE GREAT CARE ALWAYS and get home safe.
