4 Marines in Afghanistan electrocuted in separate incidents

At least four Marines have been electrocuted in separate incidents since November while serving in Afghanistan, according to the Marine Corps Times.

Their deaths were caused by low-hanging power lines that touched radio antenna and problems stemming from an electric generator, the Times reported, citing documents the paper obtained through a Freedom of Information Act request.

The Marine Corps Times reported those electrocuted in Afghanistan recently are Cpls. Adam Buyes, Connor Lowry and Jon-Luke Bateman and Lance Cpl. Kenneth Cochran.
