Man electrocuted after attempting to cut 3,000 volts electrical overhead power cable

The city’s EMS spokesperson William Ntladi said the body was found at Germiston Lake train station at about 9 am on Wednesday.

The body of a man was found hanging from high-voltage electrical cables above a railway line in Germiston, Ekurhuleni, emergency services said on Thursday.

Ntladi said a cutting tool was found between the railway lines just below the man’s body.“It is alleged that he was attempting to cut the 3,000 volts electrical overhead power cables,” he said. The man was declared dead on the scene.

In a similar incident last week Tuesday, rescue teams recovered the charred body of a man found hanging from power lines at the India train station in Germiston.
