SILVER CREEK TOWNSHIP - A Cass County man was killed and his son hospitalized when the T-V tower they were attempting to raise came in contact with power lines Thursday evening.
Timothy Curtis and his son Jonathon were both knocked unconscious. A juvenile who was helping them called 9-1-1. Jonathon regained consciousness and began C-P-R on his father, which was continued by first responders and medics, but Timothy did not respond and was pronounced dead at the scene.
Jonathon was taken to Borgess Lee Hospital in Dowagiac before transferring to Borgess in Kalamazoo where he was listed in stable condition.
