(07-08) 10:51 PDT PAINESVILLE, Ohio (AP) --


An electrician was sentenced to 30 days in jail for causing a boy's death by improperly installing electric wires on a bumper car ride at a county fair.

Nick Rock, 81, also was sentenced Wednesday to two years on probation. He was convicted in June of reckless homicide and involuntary manslaughter.

Witnesses said 8-year-old Greyson Yoe was holding a metal rail enclosing the Scooter ride when he called out "Help me" and dropped to the ground as he was electrocuted last August. He died about three weeks later.

Prosecutors said Rock failed to properly ground an electrical wire to a bumper car ride.
