Man dies seeing electrocuted grandson's body

A 65-year-old man died of heart attack when he saw the charred body of his grandson, who was electrocuted while attempting to grab a dove's nest on an electric transformer at Kallupatti near here today.
Police said 17-year-old Arun Pandian, who was on his way back home after meeting his grandfather at his workplace, saw a nest on the transformer. He came into contact with live electric wires while scaling the transformer. He got electrocuted and died on the spot.

On hearing about the news, his grandfather Maharajan, an employee of a local shoe company, rushed to the spot and saw Pandian's charred body hanging from the transformer.

Shocked by the sight, he suffered a heart attack and died on the spot.
