A Police Officer and a Boy, Electrocuted

A fallen cable
A police officer, Sunday Joseph, was on Sunday electrocuted at a police barracks opposite the Ogun State Government House while attempting to rescue a 17-year-old boy, Moses, earlier trapped by a Power Holding Company’s high-tension cable, who also died.The corpses of the two victims have been deposited at the morgue of the state Hospital, Ijaye.Eyewitnesses said the teenager was scavenging for some materials from the rubble being used by a construction company to fill a ditch when he stepped on a PHCN live cable. I dont know if its only in my area in surulere but the way PHCN switches the lights on and off is enough to blow off many more homes. Something has to be done fast.
