SAD; Graphic photos: Over 30 football fans electrocuted in a viewing center in Calabar Nigeria

Over 30 football fans watching the UEFA Europa League football quarter-final match between Manchester United and Anderlecht lost their lives in an electrocution tragedy which happened at a viewing center in Nyahasang, Atimbo Calabar, Cross River state last night.

According to reports, a transformer near the viewing center fell which caused one of the high tension cables attached to the transformer to fall on the zinc of the viewing center building. At least 30 people died from the electrocution while the few that survived were badly burnt and have been taken to Cross River state Teaching hospital. May their souls rest in peace. Amen.
