Tabloids say skunk smoker mistook pylon for bridge: what really happened

by | 22nd, June 2012

DID you hear about the Czech woman who, having smoked cannabis, mistook an electricity pylon for a bridge? She climbed it. The Daily Mail says the woman spent “four hours smoking super-strength ‘skunk’ cannabis“. She was “hallucinating“.

The Sun agrees, stating that the woman from Zlin, Czech Republic smoked skunk and mistook a pylon for a bridge. The Sun gets identifies her as a “21-year-old girl”.

The Mirror notes that the “girl” was wearing a “tiny pair of denim hotpants and a t-shirt.”

All papers quote “police spokesman Jan Macalikova”, who says:

“It was a nightmare because she was very much under the influence of drugs and wasn’t making much sense….She received treatment at hospital for her drugs consumption but was otherwise unhurt. She’s lucky she didn’t get a new high – high voltage.”

Only, the site of the Czech police force says the woman climbed the pylon “apparently because of unrequited love“.

The police say she thought she was climbing the ropes to a cable car that crosses the River Morava.

No mention of cannabis. None at all…
