Do you like your hobo rare, medium, or well-done?

Guy was high on something, no great loss to society. But probably saved the state $15k+ in welfare. Of course the family will sue for wrongful death.

They should charge him.


That would insulate him from negativity.

Nothing anyone can do at that point. That must have been hard to watch in person.

He pretty amped up about it?

A little bit. By his math, both legs of the circuit had equal resistance, but did not conduct equally.


I heard he was a serial fare jumper.

He found out that being a conductor on the railroad requires some safety training before certification.

Must have been some resistance to this.

IIRC, the subway runs on about 600 volts at probably a few hundred amps. The potential is enough to probably get through your soles, especially if you have sweaty feet.


If that rail is DC, and rectified from 600VAC, it is ~848VDC. We had an Opossum drawn onto our 848VDC bus bars once. Several people lost their lunch during the clean up.

"Hey just move a little bit to your right"

Don't hold me to this, but I seem to recall that big city transit authorities do their own in-house rail power generation from DC genny's.

ETA, after a bit of snooping around the net..........

NYC used AC to DC rotary converter gensets up until the late 90's. I believe it's all solid state now.

Yeah, his body was still moving but he was already toast, you would think the smoke coming out of his head would be a clue,

ETA: If not, surely you could make a big overhand knot in a jacket and pull it tight around his leg and drag him off of it.

He was probably dead within a few seconds, so even if it was safe to do that, I doubt it could have been done fast enough.

I also am curious about how dangerous it would be to try to pull him off though.

Within a second he was probably beyond all resuscitation.

They could have caused it. When you grab someone they naturally pull away. Looks like when he did he fell.

That guy was in a world of shit until he lost conciousness. Electricity constricts muscles. DC current locks them down hard. He could not cry out, or move.
