Policeman Freeman was electrocuted while attempting to use a police call box at the corner of 52nd Street and Vine Street, in West Philadelphia. The telephone line connecting the call boxes became electrically charged. Several other officers were also shocked while trying to use the call boxes, but Policeman Freeman was the only one to be killed as a result.
