PE man loses leg after massive electrical shock


A Port Elizabeth man sustained serious injuries and is fighting for his life in hospital after suffering a massive electrical shock at a Municipal sub-station.

Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality spokesperson, Kupido Baron, said staff made the grim find at around midnight on Wednesday when they were called out to investigate a power outage in areas fed by the Ditchling sub-station.

He said the critically injured man, who lost a leg in the incident, made contact with a 66 000 volt electrical cable during an apparent incident of cable theft.

He was rushed to a hospital where he is receiving treatment.

In January another man succumbed to his injuries two weeks after suffering an electrical shock at the same sub-station.
