Saudi boys use live power cables as swing

In a small town in Saudi Arabia, local boys found an innovate way to kill boredom by severing live power cables and using them as swings, not realizing it could be a fatal game. They just do this for fun although they know this would result in power cuts to several parts of the area.

A YouTube film published in Sabq daily showed the boys jumping on the swing surrounded by the main power pylons that feed a large area near the Western Saudi town of Medina.

“It is a deadly game…they don’t realize they could be committing a suicide,” the paper said, quoting an official at the electricity company in Medina.
