There were some anxious moments this morning at Riverside Packers just east of Drumheller.
 
Shortly after 11:30 a.m, a truck sent to empty a garbage bin behind the building backed into a power pole, snapping it off at the ground and downing the power line.
 
Crews were dispatched from the Drumheller and Rosedale Frie Departments, along with a repair truck from ATCO Electric.
 
No-one was injured and ATCO got the power to the bulding shut off while crews work to put up a new pole and re-string the line.
