An Egyptian who tried to steal cables from a power generation station in Kuwait got an electric shock and fell unconscious until police were on him, a newspaper reported on Wednesday.

Security men and power technicians inspecting the failure at the station found the unconscious man lying near the cut cables while his friend was standing next to him, Alanba said.

“The unconscious man was taken to the intensive care unit while his friend was arrested….he confessed that they tried to steal the cables and that another friend who was with them had fled.”
