BLAINE, Minn. (WCCO) – A worker was shocked after power lines fell onto the roof of a Harley Davidson shop in Blaine Thursday morning.

According to Anoka County authorities, workers at the store noticed the power out and started smelling smoke. Two workers went to investigate.

A worker climbed up a ladder to where the power line was, but the roof began conducting electricity, shocking the worker, who fell a short distance.

That employee was taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Authorities said it appeared the power line simply fell onto the building.
