A 16-year-old boy died from electrocution yesterday afternoon after he stepped in a puddle where an overhead wire had fallen on Yangon’s Bogyoke Aung San Road.

The unnamed teenager was crossing from Sakura Tower to an overhead walkway when he stepped into the pool, left after heavy rainfall, police said.

“We found that a wire cable had fallen into that pond and he had an electric shock,” an officer told The Voice.

Police are investigating Mingalar Taung Nyunt Township’s electricity department.
