Elderly Woman Singlehandedly Kills Armenia’s Internet

7 Apr

Yes, apparently Armenia gets its internet service from one single cable. The 75-year-old woman was scavaging for scrap metal when she stumbled upon a fiber-optics cable. She then cut the wire, hoping to get the copper from it. With that action, the internet went off in Armenia and in parts of Georgia for several hours. Authorities restored internet access to “thousands” after several hours.

The woman has been arrested and charged with damaging property. She faces 3 years in jail if convicted.
