Two persons, including a woman, died of electric shock at a village in the district, police said today. The 53-year-old woman accidentally stepped on a live wire at Nilagiri farm at Chakivalasa village last night, Bhogapuram sub-inspector U Magesh said. When a 22-year-old man tried to rescue her, he also got the electric shock and died, he said. Another person sustained mild injuries in the mishap, the SI said. The electric wire had fallen in the field apparently due to heavy rains and strong winds in the area, he added.
