An elderly man was killed in an explosion in a courtyard of a building in Northern Ostrobothnia on Monday evening.

The electricity company had to cut off the power supply before the victim’s body was retrieving. For safety reasons, police had cordoned off a 400-meter area.
 
It is not known why the man climbed the pole. Police investigation is currently underway.
