Worker Electrocuted by Pushing Scaffold Into Overhead Powerlines

Worker Electrocuted by Pushing Scaffold Into Overhead Powerlines

Three workers were pushing a scaffold and were trying to be careful with overhead power lines, but the scaff touched the live wire, closing the circuit with the ground. Two workers quickly released the hold on the scaffold, but one held too tight, and once the current started to flow through his body, it seized up, allowing the deadly zap to fry him.

The worker quickly turned into a fireball, as other workers panicked, having not had anything to detach their mate from the grip of death. They were all forced to watch him die.

According to the information I got, this happened in Rohtak, Haryana, India. The type of accident involving a scaffolding and overhead power lines is something we’ve seen a few of at Best Gore.

Props to Best Gore member @sagar_jungrana72 for the video:

          1. Are you all blind… It is so easy saying that they let him die and you’d do different when watching it from a safe place…..
            They had nothing to use to get him away, if they put their hands on them they would have died. So you are all saying you would risk your own life to save a guy you work with? What good is having more dead. Did you not see one of them risk his life and give himself a shock when he tried to help the poor fucker that was been fried, he kicked him to get him off it and you could see he got a big shock and after that no one is going to put their hands on it known what will happen.
            You lot always think you know everything, you watch a short video about someone you don’t know yet you feel okay in calling them names and judging them..

          1. That movie came to mind as well. It’s much more horrific if you don’t wet the sponge.

            Tom Hanks as Paul Edgecomb in the Green Mile…
            [whispers] Goddamn, the sponge is dry!

          1. The current flowing from hand to foot passes through the heart and you have instant atrial fibrillation then cardiac arrest. But it’s more like a full ampere of current flowing through the body.

    1. They were like, he’s not coming with us anymore. Let’s go n grab some beer. Typical Indian behaviour. We are totally pussy in such accidents primarily because if any cop catches us around such thing, the next we can expect us being held responsible for someones death.

  1. I know there was something shocking about this video LoL Honestly is it that worth it? Who would’ve thought to turn off the power line? Wait I’m thinking too much about this their problem they didn’t think enough.

    1. Oh yea, they could have flipped it over, and dragged it past the lines. If this was in Thailand, he would still be alive, cause they build their scaffolds out of Bamboo. Sucks to be him, poor dude.

  2. Really? REALLY! We’ve already seen this shit in an older video. How the fuck was it allowed to happen again? Just one time was all it should have taken to adopt safety guidelines.

    Fucking ridiculous.

  3. damn wish there was some audio with this instead of the dumb ass fuckers that are talking. i love to hear the pop and crackle and buzzing of it when they hit the live wire and then ground their ass, especially when the lights went out with the explosion then came back on. wow to hear that.

  4. Monkey see monkey do, the lack of common sense see is shocking… poor unfortunate guy kept on pushing as his comrades were guiding him to his death. They even drove off on him- the smell must have been unbearable I guess. Btw can anyone guess how much electricity might have passed through? Id say this was defilement instant death for this guy.

    1. I think they got a jolt but the main current went through this poor man. Electricity acts funny sometimes I’ve read. Could be the position of his hands or something which made him more in contact with the current passing through the scaffolding.

  5. Like what can you really do when someone is like that? If you touch the body I assume you feel the same tensed up jolt? When he kicked it do you think it shocked him a bit? I wonder if it was the shoes he had on or he could’ve had some sort of metal on or in his body and it was used as a conductor? Like they legit left the scene too… bye FeliCa! I guess they hit that fight or flight mood and flew! Guess I wouldn’t wanna smell or see my coworker/friend die like that either though…I wonder how long he felt it because I assume once you’re dead all muscles relax and the grip would let go?

    1. He was dead in a second, the current fried every cell in his body and his heart stopped in an instant, your muscles still tense though due to the current so his dead body held on and fried to a crisp. Depending how long it was until the power was cut off, he pretty much became part of the scaffolding

  6. So soon as the two other guys let go of the electrifying scaffold, in my mind I’m thinking, if I was there I would have gotten inside one of the parked vehicles and have knocked the fucking scaffold over with the car… so then I see one of the guys run to the car, gets in, starts it and puts it on gear and off he goes…. Then I’m thinking, wow!! Some people do seem to use their head in India… Then the video ends and I’m like… WTF did the dude driving go???
    I thought he was gone knock the scaffold over like I initially thought…
    I’m fucking disappointed af, there might be no hope for humanity after all…

    1. Suppose you hit the scaffolding with the car and the current went through your car and electrocuted you? Even with the rubber tyres, there is a chance that you could electrocuted inside the car. Anyway it’s a chance a brave man could take to save a life.

      1. I think that if you used a car with steel bumper you might want to floor the pedal and knock the scaffold over instead of pushing it away slowly…
        But if you used a modern car you would be safe from electrocution…

  7. Can you imagine the crazy shit police see when they show up? With no context you arrive on the scene, see a smoldering arm still holding the scaffolding, his buddies are gone, the smell of chicken is in the air….

  8. Reckless complacent what this bunch of idiots were to say the least .
    They have this fucking notion that if its the wood they try making a scaffold of it wouldn’t be a smart idea cause they might get zapped so they prefer the metallic ones thinking it will outdo the current and they will all be safe .

    It was hilarious seeing one of the idiot who went for his rescue only to get a triggered bolt to send him reeling back .
    Atleast from now on they must know not to fiddle or go under live wires straddling on metal scaffolds .
    For fuck sake learn to carry enough of dry wooden bars so no one gets hurt or dies .

  9. one guy did a fail attempt as he kicked scaffold the wrong way. there was still a chance for him to survive if that guy went on the other side REAL QUICK and kicked the scaffold back. still more chance than burning to crisp… atleast he tried tho… funny how if in case they were able to somehow break the contact, they had to give him electric shocks to bring him back to life.

  10. He has an electrifying personality. Get ready…. wait for it… and…

    Now in the street, there is violence
    And-and a lots of work to be done
    No place to hang out our washing
    And-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 they still can’t feed everyone

    Oh no, we gonna rock down to Electric Avenue

    Ho no, we gonna rock down to Electric Avenue
    And then we’ll take it higher

    Ho, out in the street

    Out in the playground
    In the dark side of town

    And then we’ll take it higher
    Hey, we gonna rock down to Electric Avenue
    And then we’ll take it higher

    Ohh yeah
    Rock it in the daytime
    Rock it in the night
    Rock it in my…

  11. That.
    Was.
    Awesome!
    I wonder if the conversation before hand went something like this,
    Guy 1:”Hey, you wanna tip this thing on its side before we try to get it underneath that high voltage power line? Possibly avoiding a disastrous, horrific fiery death?”
    Guy 2: “nah, bro.”
    Guy 3: “Fuck it.”

  12. Dude looked tired resting his arms on the scaffold. Serves him right for sleeping on the Job. He’ll be okay. Just need to rest up a bit…and make sure to clean all the soot off of himself after all the fireworks.
