In several neighborhoods of Ivano-Frankivsk, power engineers found shoes on power grids. These "findings" can lead to emergency blackouts and deaths.
This was reported on the Facebook page of Prykarpattiaoblenergo.
"Such games are really dangerous. The problem of "abandoned" sneakers on overhead power lines has remained relevant for many years. For example, the shoes from the photos can be found on the power lines of Ivano-Frankivsk and surrounding villages. However, the specialists of JSC Prykarpattiaoblenergo warn of the consequences of neglecting electrical safety," the post reads.
Power engineers urge parents to talk to their children and explain the dangers of such pranks.
"If you try to throw a sneaker on an electric wire, it can break off and give you an electric shock to death. Also, throwing shoes on power lines can cause a short circuit, damage networks and, as a result, cause emergency power outages," the power engineers report.
You can report "hanging sneakers" to the Prykarpattyaoblenergo hotline by phone number: 0 800 50 40 20.
