(Portsmouth, England ) A passionate footballer was tragically electrocuted to death during a kick-about with friends, apparently after he scaled a metal fence to retrieve a lost ball.
Paramedics were unable to save taxi driver Albert Xhediku, who collapsed at his regular seven-a-side session with friends after suffering an unsurvivable electric shock.
It is believed that the doomed 34-year-old was attempting to climb a metal fence in pouring rain to find a lost ball when the tragedy struck yesterday evening.
Emergency services rushed to the scene at Mountbatten Leisure Centre, in Portsmouth, after receiving frantic calls from his devastated team-mates.
Paramedics battled for nearly an hour in an attempt to save the Albanian taxi driver, who had lived in this country for a decade, but he later died at Queen Alexandra Hospital in Hampshire.
Today a relative of one of his team-mates revealed how he may have accidentally grabbed a power cable after yelling out to tell his friends he was stuck on the fence.
