Fremantle Power Station Death Latest

south fremantleThe person who witnessed the tragic death of a 24 year old man at the Fremantle Power Station over the weekend, says they begged him to stop climbing before the incident occurred.

The witness said the man climbed up the old South Fremantle Power Station on Saturday evening shortly before he fell to his death. The witness who did not want to be named warned him that what he was doing was dangerous but the Byford man and a female companion apparently refused to listen.

The man eventually fell 15 metres through a hole to his death. Read more
