SAN JOSE — One of the two men severely injured in an electrical accident in Orinda this month has died, Santa Clara County officials said.
Jose Herrera, 51, died early Wednesday morning at Santa Clara Valley Medical Center in San Jose, according to Santa Clara County Public Health Department spokeswoman Joy Alexiou. Information regarding the cause of death was not released because of privacy reasons.
Members of Herrera's family have declined interview requests.
The condition of the other man injured in the accident, Eduardo Guerra, 30, has improved from critical to serious, Alexiou said.
Herrera and Guerra suffered second- and third-degree burns over most of their bodies when their cherry picker came into contact with high-voltage electrical lines the morning of June 5.
An employee of Santa Clara-based Delta Window Cleaning, for which the two men worked, said Herrera had been employed there for 25 years.
