TOWN OF RHINE - An eight-year-old Sheboygan County boy is expected to make a full recovery after being shocked by downed power lines.
The incident happened just before 8:30 Thursday night in the town of Rhine.
It all started with a crash.
Authorities say a 64-year-old driver, lost control of his vehicle and hit a power pole.
The power lines fell down.
The boy, Malachi Blanke, was playing on his family's front lawn and was shocked. He was flown to Children's Hospital in Wauwatosa and had surgery Friday morning.
"His left arm is burnt to second and third-degree burns and the electricity came out on his right hip, so that's also burnt," said Anna Blanke, grandmother. "He's a strong little boy. Never cried. The whole time he never cried."
Officers say the driver, who was a family friend, was drinking.
He has been cited for the incident.
Authorities say he has been released from jail because it is his first offense.
