Philadelphia Sn 28 was raising the lower boom to get the bucket closer to the ground so two costumed mascots could enter. They were going to ride the truck in the bucket to the National Nite Out festivities several blocks up the road. The knuckle of the waterway made several contacts with the high voltage lines and then got stuck to them. The result is in JD’s photo. And no one was injured except for some bruised egos.
