    A man has survived an electric shock in Tongatapu this afternoon Wednesday 21.

    Tongan authorities have confirmed this to Kaniva News.

    Vaiola hospital superintendent Dr. Lisiate ‘Ulufonua said a man was in hospital after he was electrocuted but he was still alive.

    He said the patient is being attended by medical attendants.

    Police Communication Officer Telēsia Adams said she can confirm a man was electrocuted and was rushed to hospital where he received medical treatment.

    Adams said in Tongan: “Oku ne sii kei moui pe.” This translate into English as, “He is still alive.”

    An update on the details surrounding the incident will be released soon, authorities said.

    The authorities’ confirmation came after reports on Facebook that a man died after he was electrocuted in Nuku’alofa this afternoon. Police denied the reports saying the man did not die.
