I would like to offer my condolences to the friends, family, and co-workers of this man who has died such a terrible death. He and others like him worked in extremely harsh conditions to try and restore electricity to those left without power because of Hurricane Sandy. It is incredibly sad that he had to lose his life while trying to help others. I wish his loved ones all the best in trying to cope with this tragic loss. R.I.P.
