Johannesburg - A man's skeleton, dressed in overalls, was found in a manhole at an electrical substation in Pretoria on Friday afternoon, paramedics said.

"The man appeared to have been tampering with the distribution board and indications are that he had been dead for a long time," Netcare 911 spokesperson Jeffrey Wicks said in a statement.

An electrician made the find, near the Makro store at the junction of Zambesi Drive and Lavender Roads in Annlin, Pretoria.
