A young man has been electrocuted after he climbed a high-tension pylon in Kasoa.
According to eyewitnesses, the man, whose identity is yet to be known, complained about general economic difficulties and life’s struggles.
He then proceeded to climb the pylon.
Eyewitnesses said they tried to talk him out of his decision and urged him to come down but he ignored them and continued climbing.
The Police were therefore called to the scene.
However, he still refused to descend.
The young man stayed on the high-tension pole for a few hours while the Police and residents looked on, taken aback by his behavior.
At around 5:00 pm, the man was seen swinging from one of the poles and a few minutes later got electrocuted.
