A woman who had been smoking high-octane “skunk” marijuana for four hours had to be rescued after she decided it would be a good idea to climb a 40-foot electricity tower while hallucinating that it was a bridge.
It seems stunned locals spotted the 21-year-old trying to climbing the tower and called the police.
“It was a nightmare because she was very much under the influence of drugs and wasn’t making much sense,” said police spokesman Jan Macalikova. ‘She was convinced, though, that the pylon was a bridge across the Morava river.”
Police eventually talked the woman down after about two hours up on the tower.
“She received treatment at hospital for her drugs consumption but was otherwise unhurt. She’s lucky she didn’t get a new high – high voltage,” added Macalikova.
