An inquest into the workplace death of a London man who was electrocuted while setting up a tent for a wedding will be held in November.

Jeremy Bowley, 21, died Aug. 1, 2013, when a pole for the tent being set up on the rain-soaked grass at a farmhouse near Watford contacted an overhead power line.

According to the Ontario Ministry of Labour, the six workers on the tent crew were all 25 years of age and younger.

Five were injured by the initial shock from the electric current that travelled down the tent pole and into the ground.

The inquest will begin Nov. 20, 2017, with Dr. Tom Wilson presiding, the regional coroner’s office announced Monday.

The inquest is expected to last five days and to hear from about 18 witnesses.

The inquest will examine the events surrounding Bowley’s death and the jury may make recommendations aimed at preventing similar deaths.
