(KSL News) A 14-year-old boy was badly injured by a jolt of electricity tonight in Rich County.

The boy was with his cousin in the town of Randolph, when he picked up a pipe. That pipe came in contact with a 46-thousand volt power line, which gave the teen a powerful shock.

He was flown to the University of Utah burn center.
