FORT WORTH - Two brothers died after they were electrocuted by fallen power lines at a Fort Worth park Wednesday night.

Police say Isaiah Lopez, 11, and his 12-year-old brother Alex, were playing with a friend in a heavily wooded area of Oakland Lake Park. When Alex was electrocuted by the live power line, his friend ran for help. Isaiah ran to his brother and was killed trying to save him.

Fire crews made their way to where the boys were and confirmed that the power lines were still energized and arching; reports say a grass fire was also ignited from the lines.

Isaiah and Alex died from their injuries on the scene and officials confirmed that they were brothers.
