Two men identified as Rogério Macedo, 32, and Emerson Gomes de Lima, 24, were electrocuted at 9 am on Wednesday while doing maintenance work on a gas station City of Campos de Júlio (520 km from Cuiabá).

According to information provided by a Civil Police investigator, both were residents of the city of Porto-Velho, Rondônia, however, they were residing in the city just over two months ago for work purposes. The victims were employees of RL Construtora and Metalúrgica and were rendering painting and maintenance services at a gas station.

According to the police, Marcelo and Emerson would have finished the service when a scaffolding that was being removed from the site hit a high voltage wire to electrocute them. At the time, one of the victims had her leg melted.

People on the scene used a double fire extinguisher, but both were already dead. A team from the Emergency Mobile Service (Samu) was deployed and found the death of the employees.

  1. What’s up with these stupid painters and their scaffolds??? Do they never look up before, or while moving them, for fuck sakes? It angers me cause these poor guys diedid needlessly, and because of it, their poor wives, kids, and extended families, will also suffer for nothing more than them probably smoking a blunt, during work, and it leading to a stupid lack of attention, and subsequent tragedy. Painters have such a boring, and repetitive job, that most of the ones that worked on my many construction sites, Blunted regularly like fucken “Raging Rock Stars” every single day!
