‘How it all started’ in Kasoa(Complete Video Footage)
A young man was electrocuted after he climbed a high tension pylon in Kasoa.
Eyewitnesses said, the man, whose identity is unknown, complained about general economic difficulties and life’s struggles.
The man then proceeded to climb the pylon.
According to the eyewitnesses they tried to take him out of his decision and urged him to come down but the man 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 behaviour.
At around 5:00pm, the man was seen swinging from one of the poles and a few minutes later got electrocuted.
The video below covers how it all started.
Warning: the narrator uses some strong words.
