A man in his 20's has tragically lost his life on a farm in the Vergezocht area outside Bloemfontein earlier today. It is believed that the man who was working as an electrician had climbed onto a grain silo tower to repair a faulty security light. The owner of the farm passed by and saw the lifeless body of the


man lying on the tower and alerted emergency services who responded to the scene. On arrival the man was examined, but it was found that he had already passed away and that there was nothing more that could be done to save him. Members of the Mangaung Fire & Rescue Services assisted by menbers of the Free State College of Emergency care and Trauma Response Africa set up a high angle rope rescue system and lowered the body of the man to the ground from the 20 meter high tower in a rescue effort that continued well into the night. The cause of his death is not yet known and is being investigated by the SAPS.
