FRESNO, CA – A 12-year-old boy was killed after being electrocuted by an electrified fence while trying to retrieve a football.

Residents of the Villa Margarita apartments stated that the apartment’s playground was locked down early so a group of children were playing in a parking lot.

This lot had a concrete wall in front of an chain-link fence, and the space between them is where a football ended up landing. Adrien Perez, 12, elected to retrieve the football and jumped into the gap.

Witnesses say Adrien fell to the ground when he touched the chain-link fence, got back up then fell to the ground unconscious while still touching the fence.

“He jumped inside and when he jumped inside, we don’t know from where but he started getting electrocuted, he was getting electrocuted,” his mother said. “We could hear every time he was getting shocked between the fence and the wall.”

His friends and neighbors tried to get Adrien out, but the gap was too small and too deep. By time medics arrived at the scene, Adrien was no longer breathing. He was placed on life support, but would die four days later.

Fresno Police called Adrien’s death an accident, but an investigation showed a bare wire and a metal conduit had been illegally installed to power video surveillance cameras. These exposed wires were touching the chain-link fence and is what caused the fence to be electrified.

The property owner, JMY Properties LLC in Rolling Hills, was cited for the illegal wiring — which undoubtedly opens them up to a lawsuit on behalf of Adrien’s family.

“If they can show that the death of their child was related to the wire that was put there, the electrocution, which is pretty obvious, they’re gonna win their lawsuit, there’s no question about it,” said legal analyst Tony Capozzi.
