A 24-year old nursing mother, Yewande Busari, has been electrocuted in Lagos with her one-year-old son strapped to her back. The child, named Pamilerin, however, survived.

Yetunde, according to sources said, had not used the pedestrian bridge on the motorway.

Pamilerin, who has since being discharged from a hospital, has not stopped crying since the incident, and is currently with his paternal grandparents.
