MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- The family of a man who was killed in a workplace accident in Greenfield, is asking for help.

"It doesn't have to be money. I mean, you receive more comfort when somebody gives you a hug," said Luis Calix, victim's cousin. 

Luis Calix's cousin, Miguel Aburto, was electrocuted earlier this month while he was working as a subcontractor for Spectrum cable. 

Aburto is survived by a wife and children, and his cousin says this tragedy has been very hard on all of them. 

"She needs a lot of help. We need a lot of help. The kids are gonna be, they're asking why, they're asking, where's my dad. And it's very hard for us. They know already, but still, it's gonna be hard," said Calix.

The Aburto family has a GoFundMe page up for anyone who wants to help.
