Three Cable Thieves Shocked - Critical

"Hau, the 'lectric, sheesa racist!"

Johannesburg - Three men were critically injured while trying to steal electrical cables at an Eskom sub-station in Boksburg, east of Johannesburg, on Friday, paramedics said.

"When they tried to cut through the live cable it caused a large flash that burned the men," said Netcare 911 spokesperson Chris Botha.

The men sustained more than 90% burns.

Botha said seven men apparently tried to steal cables at the sub-station in St Anthony's Street in Reiger Park around 01:00.

When paramedics arrived at the scene, four men ran away.

Their three accomplices were taken to Natalspruit hospital in critical conditions.
