A video at an event in Argentina shows a rescue worker being electrocuted by power lines when zip-lining down a building.

The electrocution happened when a rescuer was demonstrating how they rescue an injured person down a building.

The footage shows the crowd witnessing the large flash when the rescuer comes into contact with the power lines and becoming unconscious.

The roles then reverse as the injured person strapped to the carriage then tries to assist the unconscious rescuer.
