NJ man electrocuted while cutting tree limbs

Authorities say a man who died while cutting tree limbs at a friend's home apparently was electrocuted.

Warren County prosecutors say Sean Loprinzi was on a crane Saturday afternoon when he likely touched an electrical wire with a gas-powered pole saw. But it's still not clear what may have caused that to happen.

The 48-year-old Oxford Township man was taken to a hospital but died there a short time later.

No other injuries were reported in the incident.

Autopsy reports on Loprinzi are pending
