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.
