WATCH: Electricity cut off to save flamingo trapped in cables

Enemalta workers last night cut off electricity from cables near the Popeye Village so that members of the Civil Protection could rescue a flamingo bird trapped in the wires.

The Civil Protection department said that the flamingo got trapped in high tension wires that reach 33kva and they had to ensure that there is no live electricity in the wires before the rescue operation started.

The flamingo bird was rescued with the use of a hydraulic platform while, as a precaution, Civil Department members were dressed in specific clothes that resist electric shocks.

When the flamingo was rescued it was handed over to Birdlife members, who thanked Enemalta and the Civil Protection for their cooperation to save the bird.
