3 electrocuted at San Bernardino, Calif., home

By AMY TAXIN, Associated Press Amy Taxin, Associated Press 2 hrs 10 mins ago

SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. – A downed power line electrocuted a man outside his Southern California home on Friday, then killed his wife and son as the two each attempted rescue in the family's backyard, authorities said.

San Bernardino firefighters arrived to find three bodies in contact with an arcing 12,000-volt electrical line in the backyard, but it was too dangerous to free them, fire spokesman Jason Serrano said. A utility company finally cut the power and coroner's officials were called.

About 150 people in the San Bernardino neighborhood about 65 miles east of downtown Los Angeles were without power in the hours after authorities responded and began investigating, Southern California Edison spokesman Steve Conroy said.
