Head for heights: After a row with his wife, Reginaldo Rocha, climbed up a nearby electricity pylon and threatened to throw himself from the top (Daily Mail)

Five Brazilian towns were left without electricity – because a man had a row with his wife, it was reported today.

The domestic began when Reginaldo Rocha, 49, arrived home from work late after drinking with pals – and admitted to his wife he had blown over £150 on drink.

As the quarrel escalated, painter and decorator Reginaldo stormed out the house in Sorocaba, in the state of Sao Paulo, southeast Brazil.
