A tragic accident in Bourne on April 12, 2014 about 12:30 hrs took the lives of two workers
when the elevated boom truck they were working in at the base of the high tension power lines
at the Cape Cod Aggregate sand pit off the Scenic Highway collapsed tipping the truck up into
the air under the power lines. The boom came crashing to the ground into the sand pit area.
Bourne crews were assisted by the Cape Cod Technical Rescue Team, Massachusetts
Department of Fire Services, and various law enforcement agencies as personnel
worked to recover the victims and secure the scene.
