Team Coverage It was more tie-dyed shirt than suit and tie at the funeral of a Fruit Heights teenager today.
Scott Nye was electrocuted last week while he attempted to climb a 70-foot-tall power pole. The 15-year-old teen could not be revived and died at the scene.
Nye's friends called the Davis High School sophomore "Sunshine." Today, many friends and relatives wore brightly colored tie-dyed shirts to honor him.
Meanwhile, some are wondering if warning signs should be placed near the pole where Nye was killed. "There haven't been any decisions about that yet. Our investigation is still proceeding," explained Dave Eskelsen, spokesman for Rocky Mountain Power.
Eskelsen says the company already distributes plenty of warnings about electrical safety through schools and advertising, some are even included in your monthly bill. "We think we've run a very vigorous education program directed specifically at children," he said.
He says some investigations take months.
