A North Huntingdon man who was shocked over the weekend by downed power lines in Greensburg is in good condition at a Pittsburgh hospital.

David Miller, 21, is recovering after the incident on South Main Street.

City police said Miller was discovered at about 3:30 a.m. Sunday by an officer checking on a report of a transformer fire. Miller was lying face down in the middle of a traffic lane between two downed lines, according to police.

The victim was alert and conscious and told police he had been shocked while walking near the city police department.

West Penn Power officials are investigating the incident, company spokesman Todd Meyers said.
