BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KBAK/KBFX) — A man was electrocuted Tuesday evening while working on a junction box for a large cooler at Grimmway Farms, according to Peter Melton of the California Division of Occupational Safety and Health.

The incident, which occurred in the 6900 block of Mountain View Road, is under investigation, Melton said. He wasn't sure if 49-year-old Alejandro Hernandez was a contractor or a Grimmway employee.

The coroner's office said Hernandez was pronounced dead at the Kern Medical Center emergency room.
