Firefighters in Malaga have safely rescued a young man who climbed to the top of an electricity pylon carrying high-voltage cables in the El Atabal district of the city this Monday (16 August).
Emergency services were called to the incident when the man was spotted ‘making a fuss and asking for help’, according to a witness.
The reason for him climbing the pylon is unknown.
Electricity company Endesa was asked to cut the high-voltage supply through the cables until the man was safely lowered to the ground by firefighters who scaled the 50-metre high pylon.
The 27-year-old man was transferred to hospital after being safely rescued by the emergency services.
