Theft robbery

A Man Got Electrocuted While Trying To Steal Copper Cables From Live Power Lines.

The body of a man was brought down from high voltage electrical power lines on the railway line, Rondebult, today by a 7-man fire and rescue team from Wadeville fire station. It is alleged the man was tampering with the live 3000 volts power lines at the time of his death.

So which one of the many areas in Ekurhuleni would this affect? The Lambton one that’s been out since yesterday morning? The Albemarle one that’s been out since this morning, or the Thokoza one. Too far for Kempton Park. Wadeville had power outage.

The incident has caused a stud on social media with many people saying that these suspects never learn that you can never steal live cables from the power lines.

We have seen many repeats of this but it seems like the suspects never learn to resist from their campaigns. This is just another example of theft that has gone wrong, the suspect hoped to destabilize many households with his pursuits for money and paid the ultimate price with his life.
