10/09/07 CEE 4804 Case 8: Power Company v. J. Young Overview: This case is between Power Company and J. Young who was a 10-year-old boy at the time of the incident. J. YOUNG had above average intelligence, but suffered from attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). J. Young was electrocuted at a power station near his apartment complex after he had entered the area. The power station had a fence surrounding the property with barb wire at the top and ‘Danger High Voltage’ signs on the property. A tenant for the apartment had reported to the power company that there were holes in the fences that a child could fit through. The power company sent out an inspector who then inspected and reported that the holes were not big enough for a person to fit through and not a risk. This inspection occurred two weeks before J. Young was electrocuted. Key Facts: The accident occurred when J. Young and some of his friends were playing near the site. Their ball went into the power station and so they went after it.
