Forest Park man killed trying to retrieve drone

Authorities in a metro Atlanta suburb say a man was electrocuted and killed while trying to retrieve a drone that had become stuck in a tree.

In a statement, Forest Park police said 37-year-old Reff Teasley and his brother Calvin Teasley were trying to retrieve the drone by using a metal pole when the pole touched a power line.

Authorities say both were sent flying backward by the shock. Reff Teasley wasn't breathing when police arrived. He was pronounced dead at a local hospital.

Calvin Teasley was hospitalized. He was stable, but his exact condition is unclear.

No further details have been released.
