Police in Blantyre have managed to rescue a man who climbed on ESCOM Power Transmission lines in an attempt to commit suicide.
Police have identified the man as 40-year-old Domingo Chilenje who resides in Makanjira.
Domingo spent more than 2 hours on the ESCOM power lines as police tried to convince him not to proceed with his thoughts.
Chileka Police Station Officer, James Mbale said police were yet to establish the reasons behind this.
He has since been referred to Chikuni Health Centre to undergo mental examination.
Domingo has turned out lucky as he was very much likely to be charged with attempted suicide under Section 229 of the Penal Code.
