Two children electrocuted

Aug 14, 2010 12:07:33 PM - itnnews.lk

Two children are reported to have been electrocuted at Pathulpana in Ratnapura. Another child who had received an electric shock is in a critical condition in hospital.

The three children had reportedly climbed a Rambuttan tree to pluck the juicy fruits and had been affected by a power line adjacent to the tree. The cause for this had been an iron rod that they had been using to pick the fruits. The children were between the ages of 10 to 15 years. The two who died are Saranga Attygalle and Sapuni Attygalle, students of Welimaluwa Vidyalaya in Ratnapura.
