FOREST HILL, Texas (AP) - Police say a 39-year-old utility worker was apparently electrocuted while repairing an electrical line in suburban Fort Worth.

John Murphy, who worked for Oncor Electric Delivery, died Saturday.

Oncor officials sent a coworker to look for Murphy after he failed to check in from the site. Officials say the coworker found Murphy, of nearby Benbrook, in a cherry picker bucket that was extended into the air.

Murphy was rushed to a hospital, where he died.
