PRESTON, Md.- A farmer working on a grain silo in Preston had to be rushed to the hospital after coming into contact with live power lines Monday morning, authorities said.

Maryland State Police said that shortly after 10 a.m., Greg Turner was hoisting a part to the top of a grain silo at a farm on Harmony Road, when the steel cable swung and came into contact with nearby power lines. That is when the power lines ran through the crane and was grounded through Turner, who police said was in contact with the crane.

Turner lost consciousness and was transported to Memorial Hospital in Easton. Police said that by early afternoon, Turner was conscious and alert and is expected to make a full recovery.

MSP investigators are working with the Maryland Occupational Safety and Health in this case.
