The 30-year-old man, who has not been named, had been working on an electricity line in woodland near Cawsand, South East Cornwall, when it is understood the accident happened. Police and paramedics were called to the scene, around a mile outside the seaside village, late on Wednesday. The incident happened in woodland just off Pier Lane.
Detectives spent several hours at the scene yesterday as police cordoned off the area where the man is believed to have been working high up an electricity pole.
