GoFundMe page started for two Saskpower workers killed this week

A GoFundMe page for the families of two Weyburn men killed in an industrial accident this week has already raised over $23,000 dollars.

51-year-old Scott Bill and 40-year-old Cole Crooks have been identified as the SaskPower workers who fell from a bucket Thursday afternoon while performing some work on lines in Weyburn.

SaskPower President and CEO Mike Marsh issued a release late Saturday morning saying Bill and Crooks worked as powerline technicians on the Weyburn construction crew and their work took them to many communities in southern Saskatchewan.

“From the bottom of our hearts, we acknowledge them for their service and dedication to SaskPower and to our customers across the province and that this terrible loss of members of our SaskPower family and of the Weyburn community, is deeply felt by us all.” Marsh said.

It is still not known what caused the two men to fall.
