LAUREL CANYON—Last night two women tragically perished from electrocution while attempting to help the victims of an auto accident after the vehicle struck a fire hydrant and a light standard. The accident occurred at approximately 8:30 p.m. in the 12000 block of Magnolia Boulevard near Ben Avenue in Valley Village.
Los Angeles Fire Fighters quickly rushed to the motionless victims on the ground, thankfully however, warning bystanders stopped them from setting foot in the electrically charged water. Instead they utilized rubber gauntlet gloves and a long pike pole to retrieve the victims before performing medical aid.
In the aftermath of the accident a total of eight individuals were injured. Unfortunately, despite audacious treatment from Los Angeles Fire Fighters and Paramedics, two were later pronounced dead at the local hospital.
