Reaction Unit South Africa members in Tongaat have recovered the deceased body of a 23 year old man who was electrocuted on Saxon Street in Belvedere.

According to the Reaction Unit South Africa news report, earlier today 4 December 2021 at around 12:39 pm Reaction Unit South Africa (RUSA) members were called for assistance after a 23 year old man got electrocuted by an illegal Electricity Connection on Saxon Street in Belvedere.

Reaction Officers and RUSA Medics arrived at the scene, upon arrival they found the man lying down on the ground, he was examined and was confirmed deceased by Medics.

According to witnesses who were at the scene, the man slipped along the pathway and tried to balance himself by holding onto a wire fence which became electrified due to exposed electricity cables making contact with the fence, after holding on to the fence for a while he fell on the ground.

This incident is a clear demonstration of how dangerous illegal electricity connections are, hopefully the illegal connection in this area will be removed before more people get hurt.
