Scott Christopher Reid, loving father and T&D Solutions lineman sadly died while trying to restore power in Fort Lauderdale.
Fort Lauderdale, Florida – A tragedy, a man working to restore power in a parking garage of the Westin Hotel in Fort Lauderdale, died when he fell five stories. Investigators say it is unclear what caused Reid to fall.
Reid is from Hardee County, but often worked in Fort Lauderdale.
I got a call from the detective, and he just kind of told me he had an accident. He was deceased. It was kind of hard to take,” said widow Chelsea Reid. “As a line wife, you always prepare yourself for that phone call. Your husband’s hurt or husband’s in the hospital, but you never expect to get it.”
Reid’s funeral will take place Saturday at a church in the Hardee County town of Bowling Green.
Our Thoughts and Prayers go out to the Reid family during this very difficult time.
