An excavator is trapped in power lines in West Kelowna and the operator is unable to exit the machine.
The excavator became tangled in the power lines about just after 2 p.m. while working on Spland Road near Katherine Road.
The incident caused a power outage to 125 BC Hydro customers.
Emergency crews are on scene trying to help the operator safely exit the excavator.
A power pole is down across the road and traffic is being blocked from the area.
More to come.
