Insane! This Bro Climbed An Electrical Tower Dressed Like Tarzan And It Took Police Hours To Coax Him Down

Jan 12th

This dude in Charlotte, North Carolina climbed up an electrical tower and the police had to turn off the power to 20,000 people as they spent hours trying to get the man back on the ground.

Watch the local news story here:

Officers said a man climbed 85 feet to the top of an energized electrical tower off Woodlawn Road and Nations Crossing Road. It took negotiators nearly four hours to get him to climb down safely.

CMPD Major Brian Foley said the man appeared to be in the advanced stages of drug or alcohol abuse.

"That tower was energized with six lines, each carrying about 115,000 volts," said Foley. "I don't know what your faith is, but I think God was watching over him today."

Thankfully, the police were able to save the man's life and get him to safety. But think about it: the man was 85 feet in the air, surrounded by six power lines that carry 115,000 volts each!

And why was he dressed like Tarzan or Captain Jack Sparrow??

Don't do drugs, kids. It's not good for you.
