terrible tragedy today in my next village that resulted in a powercut

(21 Posts)

A teenager apparently climbed a pylon.
We had a powercut, for sometime today and I wondered why.
Very sad

Oh no, how awful

I saw that happen to a squirrel. Cannnot (and don't want to) imagine what it is like with a person.

how awful for his family. Why on earth was he climbing it?

Notalone Mon 15-Sep-08 19:16:09

No - not as far as I know. Sure it won't be too long though. His friends must be traumatised

sad poor child and poor poor family...
what on earth were he and his friends doing, such a waste of life.

Remember the scary ads there used to be, one had the consequences of a boy going into a power station to retrieve a frisbee?

About time they started showing them again I think. Perhaps they terrified the life out of us but they sure as hell got the point across.

I saw this and it made my blood run cold. I could imagine ds1 doing this if he got out alone. He climbs everything. Poor family.

I think you're right, Twoifbysea, they should bring those ads back.

Poor boy and his family and friends, my heat goes out to them today

But could I just say common sense tells you not to climb these things surely. I don't remember any ads before but we just knew not to do it. Didn't the fire brigade used to come in and talka bout things like this? Perhaps it's time they do we don't want another faily to suffer through something that could be so easily avoided

How terrible.

I remember the adds, maybe they should start running them again.

How awful sad
twoifbysea. I'm still terrified of pylons and train tracks after seeing those ads when i was small. I'm 38 now.

I saw it on local news too .

Tragic sad

Both my dc try to climb everything too so this terrifies me.

I remember them ads, would be a gooD idea to bring them back.

How ghastly. His poor family.

I still think about those ads whenever I walk near a pylon, it really stuck in my mind.

Why did they stop showing them?
