LinkyJohannesburg – A Fourways, Sandton man met a gruesome death in Lenasia when he died after stepping on live wires on the side of the road.
The man had parked his car on the side of Nirvana Drive and went to answer the call of nature when he met his tragic death.
The incident happened on Saturday afternoon and the ANC’s PR Councillor for Ward 10 in Lenasia, Zarina Motala, said what had happened was “absolutely heartbreaking”.
According to Motara, the man normally leaves his Fourways home and travels to the Station Butcher in Lenasia where he buys meat.
Motara said when after the man bought the meat, he must have desperately needed the loo as he decided to park on the side of the road and relieved himself.
Unfortunately he stepped on live wires that run from the streets lights and into the informal settlements. He died at the scene.
“People in the nearby shops must have seen him lying there and they called the police who then safely removed his body.
