Dispatcher shocked in Struthers

STRUTHERS, Ohio (WKBN) — A Struthers police dispatcher was shocked over the weekend when water from a leaky pipe dropped on electrical equipment.

The dispatcher touched the equipment and was jolted from his seat. He then hit his head and suffered a concussion.

A source said a pipe in the ceiling has been leaking for about eight months.

The city put a plastic container in the drop ceiling to catch the water, but the container overflowed.
