Coroner IDs man electrocuted in Sherman Oaks during massive storm

Officials on Tuesday identified a 49-year-old Jurupa Valley man who police said was electrocuted in the heavy storm on Feb. 17.

Robert Wagner was pronounced dead at 1:24 p.m. Feb. 17 at Sherman Oaks Hospital, said Craig Harvey of the Los  Angeles County Department of Medical Examiner-Coroner.

Harvey said more tests were being conducted before an official cause of death was announced.

The incident was reported at 12:43 p.m. Friday at 5300 N. Sepulveda Boulevard in Sherman Oaks.

As heavy rain and wind pummeled the San Fernando Valley, a tree branch fell, taking out power lines before it landed on a vehicle.

Wagner was apparently touched by an electrified line or somehow had contact with the charged water, police said.
