    2 Shocked on Cape Cod Pier, Transported to Hospital

    Two people are in the hospital after they were shocked by a pier on Cape Cod.

    An 11-year-old boy was shocked when he stepped onto a metal plate on MacMillan Pier in Provincetown Sunday afternoon. The shock sent him into the water, fire officials said.

    A 25-year-old man jumped into the water to help the boy and was also shocked by the plate as he was coming back onto the pier.

    The boy was transported to Cape Cod Hospital with what are believed to be non-life-threatening injuries.
