MidiLibre/Scoop, Jul 25

A worker in Marseillan got into trouble when his basket hit a high voltage line, and he got stuck inside.

Hérault firefighters had to intervene to get him out. On Wednesday morning, the firefighters blocked the rue des Maiteries, to rescue the man who was stuck just under the dangerous high voltage line.

The man was conscious, but unable to stand due to the position of the basket under the lines.

ERDF disconnected the line to allow the 18-strong team of firefighters to rescue the man.
