Valley native killed by downed power line.

Wayne Bleigh (24) of valley was killed this morning while working on Alabama’s power crew trying to restore power to homes damaged by the winter storm. Alabama power mourns the loss of the “hardest working grunt they ever had”. An investigation is underway but officials say there was no foul play involved. “People don’t realize the dangers we go through to keep them warm, that boy was like a brother to me” says Alabama Powers Alan Heard. Heard was Wayne’s foreman on duty when the tragedy took place.
