Officials say a high school baseball coach and his wife were electrocuted while installing a new scoreboard at a Florida baseball field to replace one that had been destroyed by Hurricane Michael.

Liberty County school board member Kyle Peddle said that Coach Corey Crum and a few baseball players and parents were putting up the scoreboard on March 11. Crum was in "some kind of lift, and he got into an electrical line," Peddle said.

Peddle said Crum's wife, Shana, came to her husband's aid and was also electrocuted. The couple's son, Chase, was injured.
