The amperage needed to carry all those trains around the system is immense. Yet ANOTHER reason not to enter the subway in a highly inebriated state. See also the example of the man who had his intestines ground into hamburger under the Union Square gap filler last year.

This is a good video to show the hazards of messing around on subway track or any electrified tracks. Maybe thos dimwits doing long jumps at 9th Avenue, and those numbnuts playing chicken on the #3 tracks in Brooklyn should take a good gander at this!!

Eh, not unless you don't know what you're doing.

One of the better improvements in the TWU was the Union Family Assistance Program in which members having 12-9s could get counselled by members of their piers. In my case, being a shoulder to cry on was more important to me than my own dealing with 12-9s but you don't realize that when you are leaving the MAC. I looked at the video once and don't want to again but I was angered especially at the people who though more important of film at 11 than to pick up a phone, he was on the track for a couple of minutes. I would not have hesitated one second to call the control 800 number or run to the north end and flash the tower operator with my mag light I always carry. The man got what he wanted but didn't deserve what he got :-(

The real tragedy of this is that it won't deter the Truly Stupid from continuing to go on the tracks and frying themselves. "That shit won't happen to me!"

I think what NYCT should do is make a PSA commercial out of that video and close it with something like: "If you do this and you are injured or killed, not only are we in no way liable, we are going to bill your survivors for the costs incurred removing your body and restoring service." That may not deter the Truly Stupid, either...but it sure as hell will put a stop to asinine wrongful death lawsuits and perhaps make some parents actually try and keep their kids out of trouble.

Witnesses on 3rd rail electrocution (F) at 34 St

Comments from dnainfo.com

Teresa Ting:
I was there before he jumped into the tracks. There was a woman and an mta worker trying to help him get out of the tracks, but he refused and appeared to be crying. He definitely looked intoxicated but suicidal.. Wasn't sure if he fell into the third rail or if he purposely did it, but I could never forget that horrible moment when I saw him being electrocuted live on the spot.. It was absolutely shocking.

I just had to leave the scene.. I was horrified :(




Olivia Benta:
I saw him in tracks that night... half of his left side was laying on top of the third rail. He just layed there burning to death... it was horrifying. There is obviously a deeper story as to why this happened. Its not as if the third rail is close enough to accidently fall onto... not to mention he refused to be helped back up by a woman who was holding his hand.




Isael Perez:
I was on the south bound f train as it pulled into the station. the smell I will soon not forget. I did take a video and it's on you tube. a woman was holding on to his shirt and telling the officer that it was his. smh the officer had more important things to worry about than his shirt. I couldn't understand what happened to his other shoe as well. My opinion was it looks like he was pushed since he was so far from the platform. or it could be he got up and stumbled and fell on the third rail.




Sharif Ray Rivera:
My mother works for mta and she finished working that station and her friend just started working on that station she witnessed the incident as it happened the reason he didnt have a shirt or shoe was because people were trying to keep him from going into the tracks by holding his shirt and he took it off as he fell on the 3rs rail it was so strong it blew his sneaker right off im just tired of my mom telling me when people die in transit just makes me mad and ruins my day




Violetsfavoriteflowers Victoria:
I also saw the guy people were running upstairs .. I witnessed him shacking on the mid rails he appeared alert at the time and afraid he seem to have no control to help himself up..

People were trying to get help. I also ran upstairs for help.. The woman at the booth was calling for help because someone got to her way before me.. A few minutes after people came running screaming and crying including children.. Some said there was fire.. It wasn't clear to me the words.. I hurriered back done with a guy who was really concerned also.. I was so shocked to see the man's neck caught in the third rail and smoke... I was in tears myself.. His face was like that of a baby.. Eyes closed no movement.. A cop was radioing for more help... EMS got there they were fighting to get him out of the rail.. I caught some of it on tap too! The sadist thing you could ever see.the saddest thing. Where is family who was he



MrOshun Gold:
April I was on the D train, way after it happened. I saw a police man screaming over the radio to shut power off as the F train was coming. I felt so sorry for the guy, but did not understand why he was without one sneaker and shirtless and why would he fall so far into the third rail. God rest his soul.

Not likely. People who are electrocuted at high levels of voltage and amperage like this, almost always lose consciousness on contact. Even though you can see the man's body jerking, that's the current passing through him; however, he is already dead, or nearly so.

Ouch! Something similar happened some years ago on the Princeton Dinky. Two sophomores thought it would be fun to make love on the roof of the train (its car was stored overnight at the University). It was going well, until HE forgot about the catenary, and stood up... :(

There should be some sort of system set up so that the power on the third rail is off until literally seconds before a train enters the station....that would prevent much of this and shouldn't cost all that much to institute.

If that's the case I'm shocked more people don't use this as a method of suicide, seems rather easy and painless if you get KO'd once you make contact with the 3rd rail.

Especially out in Nassau County where its so easy to get to the 3rd rail at a Grade Crossing.

Seems easier and less painful than jumping off a Bridge and you're still conscious once you're in the water gravely injured. And of course, a better method than actually jumping in front of a train, where you'd fukk up the mental health of the T/O and you're body is gonna look like a mangled mess.

It's not a guaranteed way to commit suicide. A police sergeant in the Bronx, under investigation last year, couldn't live with the idea of testifying in court against other cops. He ran up to the 242-Van Cortlandt station of the (1), and grabbed the third rail with BOTH hands. All that did was knock him silly and give him third-degree Burns on both hands. Now he is disfigured for the rest of his life.

Do those people know where the pay phone is down there (seriously doubt there is cell phone access)? They probably don't know there is a tower at the north end either.

I think that the caternary one is worse---there, it's 2 sparks and he's fried.

I think he had to have been high on some drug other than alcohol.`

I thought so. I also thought the discussion had branched off to another station, so I double-checked the prior few posts.

Probably took a long time to clean up the mess. And I'd guess cleanup can't even start untill the on-scene investigation is complete.

Part of me really wants to watch this video...as a teen or evne in my 20s, I definitely would have. The 44 year0old me is a bit more sensitive to humanity, and I think if I do, I'll be too upset all day.

Yes, I know these people did it to themselves, but STILL...

How about pulling the power from an emergency box and calling control from the emergency telephone?
