Man Standing on Top of Train Electrocutes by Touching Overhead Powerline

This video is from a Melda town railway station near ABA Ghani Khan Choudhury Sarani, English Bazar, West Bengal, India.

In the video, a man standing on top of a train touches the overhead powerline and gets electrocuted.

Just before he makes contact with the high tension wire, it looks as though someone threw something at him, perhaps in an attempt to make him go down. What it really does is make him reach for the wire and turn himself into a ball of flame. He remains standing for the next second or two, burning like a torch, before finally falling on the rooftop.

Props to Best Gore member @edward63 for the video. Not the first time something like this happened in India:

  1. Most of India like this one has old style electric overheads that are still running the 3kv direct current pushing major current, he was dead before he dropped an inch. but the new (Bardhaman Main Line) in India, has been converted to 25 kV 50 Hz AC. I think we need a couple more volunteers for a side by side comparison.

  2. Boy
    Down in the street there is violence
    And a lots of work to be done
    No place to hang out our washing
    And I can’t blame all on the sun, oh no
    We gonna rock down to Electric Avenue
    And then we’ll take it higher
    Oh we gonna rock down to Electric Avenue
    And then we’ll take it higher

      In all probability, nothing.

      Transmission along the fastest human nerve fibres responsible for pain occurs at 0.61m/s.

      25 KV AC is sufficiently powerful to cross an air gap so he may not even have made direct contact with the power cable.

      Electricity will conduct through the human body at near instantaneous speed, and the effect of high voltage and amperage would result in vapourisation of tissue and incineration.

      His nerves, and everything else, would have been destroyed before any possibility of a nerve signal even leaving a finger tip.


  3. he deserves to be recreated as an animated character, the arm positioning and silence was classic, did he pray just before?? (-O-).. the first touch, THEN A SECOND, and the drop was just so melodramatic it could be hilarious.

    is he.. living?

    ONE MEN ON A TRAIN by bad jonny (sic)

    Hi – it’s Bad Jonny
    I’m back again

    I saw a guy
    On top of a train

    Seemed to be gay
    I don’t know his name

    He was a little Jew cunt-rag
    Like Nathan Le Lane

    Okay I remember
    His name was Wayne

    Claimed he sodomized
    Clare fucking Dane

    While listening to jazz
    John Le Coltrane

    And that black little homo
    Who sang Purple Rain

    That black little cunt-rag
    With long curly mane

    Wayne was an ugly old cunt
    Like Ian McShane

    Then he did something
    Really insane

    He grabbed the wire
    To swing to the lane

    Went up like a flambé
    Writhing in pain

    With lots to lose
    And nothin’ to gain

    On this little World
    He’s but a shit-stain

    Glad he is gone
    Glad he was slain

    Glad Steve Irwin is dead
    Glad Abel killed Caine

    Glad Superman died
    And Tarzan raped Jane

    He did sodomize her
    And devoid of shame

    And in this sick World
    With it’s sick fuckin’ game

    All of our morals
    Just flushed down the drain

    A chick from Brazil
    Fucked that Great Dane?

    There’s one last thing
    I want to explain:

    Why nibble the entrees
    When you can have the main?

    Pig out on the T-Bone
    Forget the rice grain ..

  5. Do you ever feel like a plastic bag
    Drifting thought the wind
    Wanting to start again
    Do you ever feel, feel so paper thin
    Like a house of cards
    One blow from caving in
    Do you ever feel already buried deep
    Six feet under scream
    But no one seems to hear a thing
    Do you know that there’s still a chance for you
    ‘Cause there’s a spark in you
    You just gotta ignite the light
    And let it shine
    Just own the night
    Like the Fourth of July
    ‘Cause baby you’re a firework
    Come on show ’em what your worth
    Make ’em go “Oh, oh, oh!”
    As you shoot across the sky-y-y

  6. This is probably the 3rd or 4th Indian train electrocution video I’ve seen where the zaps have the exact same cadence. I’m guessing it’s due to protective equipment on the supply operating.

  7. Super instantaneous!

    Has to be 1000 times more efficient than the US correctional systems “old sparkly” ever was on its best day. I doubt he felt a thing. Makes you wonder, since our brains are really just electrical activity what a super boost and fusion with all those volts might do.
