5-year-old boy fatally shocked in Mishawaka

MISHAWAKA, INDIANA - Police say a 5-year-old Mishawaka boy was fatally shocked when he crawled into an electrical transformer between two apartment complexes.

Mishawaka police say Izaya Michael Baiz-Hickey was shocked about 5 p.m. November 27 when he grabbed electrical circuitry inside the electrical transformer box.

Assistant Police Chief Michael Samp said he didn't know whether the box was locked.

Samp says the department was still investigating the boy's death, which he called one of the most horrible things he's ever seen in his law enforcement career.

The accident happened between the Williamsburg on the Lake and Carriage House apartment complexes in the city just east of South Bend.
