Mesa fire spokesperson Larissa Dvorak said two men were injured Saturday morning when they fell from a power pole during a training exercise in Mesa.
Dvorak said the men were part of a group from a local electrical union who were taking part in electrical power line training at a facility near Sossaman and Pecos roads.
The men were about 45 feet up the pole when it snapped at the base, said Dvorak.
Both suffered multiple broken bones and were taken to local hospitals.
