Stoned girl mistook pylon for bridge

A girl had to be rescued when she climbed a 40ft electricity pylon thinking it was a bridge after smoking super-strength cannabis.

Horrified locals spotted the 21-year-old, from Czech Republic, apparently trying to cross a river and dialed 999.

Police spokesman Jan Macalikova said: “It was a nightmare because she was very much under the influence of drugs and wasn’t making much sense.

“She was convinced, though, that the pylon was a bridge across the Morava river.”

Drugs counsellors and police eventually persuaded her to come down after two hours on the pylon.

“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 the police spokesman.
