The police are investigating the theft of copper cabling belonging to the Cape Finisterre Lighthouse in Galicia .
The theft was carried out in June when two individuals targeted electrical installations that feed the lighthouse itself. However, whilst they were busily stealing the copper core one of them received an electric shock, causing severe injuries.
Despite the ‘accident’ both men managed to hide the stolen cable before making off.
The Guardia Civil have since arrested the injured man, who had previously been attended to at the A&E of the local hospital.
