Cable Theft Gone Wrong: See What Happened To This Guy [Video]

South Africa is going through a hard time when things aren't going as well as they should. People are having a hard time because a lot of things aren't going well. For example, the price of gasoline keeps going up, which makes everything more expensive, including food.

As we speak, there is a huge load-shedding problem, and people have to live in a state where they don't have electricity for hours at a time. Aside from people who don't pay for electricity, illegal connections and cable theft are some of the reasons for this. However, sometimes the electricity fights back, and the thieves end up being the ones who lose power.

Theft of cables costs ESKOM a lot of money because thieves always go out and damage the infrastructure as they steal cables to sell to scrap yards and other places where copper cables are wanted. When they are successful, communities are left in the dark and other businesses are hurt badly because they can't run without electricity. This guy who was trying to steal cables had a bad day and got electrocuted.

A video on social media shows a cable thief walking down the building through a ladder after his attempt to steal cables in Carletonville between the Shell garage and the railroad by the bridge went horribly wrong. He may have had his wires crossed, and things went badly for him. He got badly burned and was electrocuted.

On the video, a badly burned man was seen walking down a ladder after emergency services came to help him after a bad day at work. His clothes were torn, his skin was falling off, and he was clearly in a lot of pain because he couldn't walk properly.
