Police have requested the Sri Lanka Air Force to help with the rescuing of a young individual who had climbed up a high tension tower.
The 22-year-old individual had climbed the tower yesterday (3), while protesting against a certain cause.
The individual is believed to be a resident from the Bandarawela area.
The Ceylon Electricity Board had to go to the extent of disabling the tower, due to the health and safety concern that sparked, last night.
Hence many of the areas that relied upon the transmission tower, experienced a lengthy black out.
