A 21-year-old man who appeared to be mentally disturbed was rescued after spending about eight-and-a-half hours at the top of an electricity pylon alongside Moses Mabhida Road near Makro yesterday.

Members of the SAPS and fire department and various paramedics gathered at the scene of the drama from early morning, but attempts to talk the man down initially failed.
