A freak accident in Vale, Oregon has claimed the life of a young man. 

26 year old Dalton Rodriguez was working at EP Minerals' plant when the accident happened.

According to KTVB, he was changing 30-foot hand aluminum pipes in handline sprinklers when one of the poles he was working with came in contact with an overhead power line and he was fatally electrocuted.

He was transported to Saint Alphonsus Medical Center in Ontario, but passed away from his injuries. No blame is being made and no charges have been filed.

A young life taken far too soon.
