TOLLESON, Ariz. (AP) - Police have identified a man who died after being electrocuted while changing light bulbs above a parking lot in Tolleson.

The Arizona Republic reports (https://bit.ly/1wtRtFc) that Tolleson police spokesman Obed Gaytan says 62-year-old Henry Naranjo Sr., of Phoenix, was standing in a boom lift Saturday morning when a bulb made contact with a power line overhead.

Firefighters responding to the scene were able to safely bring him down but he was pronounced dead.

Tolleson Fire Chief George Good says the death appears to be an accident.

No other injuries were reported and Naranjo appeared to be working alone.
