NZ girl falls on power line

"A 16-year-old girl is in a critical condition in an Auckland hospital after receiving a massive electric shock from a 33,000 volt power line."

The worst thing about this story is the girl appears to have done this to herself and I am so glad she is alive. It goes to show just how alert the people who live around the power station are and how quickly medical help was given to her so that she could be given this chance to survive. She had been in the hotel opposite and then appears to have broken into the power station. It is such high risk behaviour and you have to wonder why. We are having trouble with power stations too and it's something which needs addressing as a matter of urgency so we can make them inaccessible to unauthorized entry
