By 67AM KPUA News

HILO, Hawaii (AP) A man who was inspecting the installation of a water tank on the Big Island has been electrocuted.

Hawaii Island police say that the 56-year-old man was killed Thursday morning in Puna while inspecting the electrical system for the newly-installed tank. Another man sustained a minor injury for exposure to electrical current.

The victim was taken to Hilo Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead at 10:32 a.m.

An autopsy was scheduled for Friday morning to determine the exact cause of death.

Police are withholding the man's identity until a positive identification can be made and next of kin notified.
