Props to archamedes for the video and this awesome description:
It’s another Indian dancing the lightning while standing on top of a train. I say another one, because it’s not uncommon for trains in India to be completely overloaded with passengers and more often than not, someone always grabs the live cable. Anyway, after they pull him down, you can really see the damage caused by high voltage, he looks like a chicken leg over microwaved with flaps of charred clothing attached/fused to the body.
It’s true that it’s not uncommon for trains in India to be overload as it’s not uncommon to see Indians take a ride atop the trains. Some of you may remember the video of another Indian guy who grabbed the live cable on top of a train and took a fiery zap from hell. If one thing leads to another, then there is no wonder trains in India are overloaded. If you ride on the train roof and get electrocuted, it’s bound to cause delays and confusion which in turn results in fewer people reaching their destination in time so they have to take next available train which is – as a result – guaranteed to be overloaded.
Another thing about India – as seen from the video below – if someone gets electrocuted, they don’t bring stretcher to the victim, they drag the victim to the stretcher.
