Rainy Day – Cautions

And this goes to all of the Street Walkers – BEWARE from the fact that on a rainy day there’s high chance of some electric / telephony poles having current/”also known as earth” passing through.

I ran into a same incident on China Chowk at Shahr-e-Aiwan-e-Tijarat when a poor guy accidentally placed his hand on telephone drop pole to save himself from slippery footpath but got caught by a bad electric shock. Fortunately it was a telephony pole (which has far less energy than a electric pole) – Lahore Traffic Police stabilized the person and RESCUE 1122 was called on and he was rushed to Trauma Center in a conscious state. All good wishes & prayers for him.



The Pole which electrocuted the man:

    Please practice extra caution while on the roads during rains. Such incidents are real and cause grave danger to your life.

    Stay safe!

    Good piece of advice… however, a minor note to the author: You might wanna check the meaning of “Street Walker”…
