Sad news....can't help but laugh though

A man was killed at a busy railway station when he reportedly urinated on the track.

British Transport Police confirmed the 41-year-old was electrocuted at Vauxhall station in south London last week.

He walked on to the track from Platform 1, a BTP spokesman said.

According to reports, the Polish tourist went to find somewhere discreet to go to the toilet but his urine splashed on to the live rail.

He was said to be a married teacher who was visiting the UK to improve his English.

A spokesman for London Ambulance Service said a fast response unit and two ambulances were sent to the station but the man died at the scene.

Which is exactly what the guy felt before he became numb from the electric! I thought Mythbusters busted this as a Myth. So much for Myth Busters!

they did, so i presume he actually touched the live rail, rather than the urinating killing him

It is funny, there are signs and no access steps to the railway for good reason, what a doughnut.

i thought Mythbusters found peeing on an electric fence to be plausible, but the rail was always busted.

According to Wikipedia:
Although it is possible to electrocute yourself by urinating on a third rail, you would have to stand unrealistically close to the rail to do it. In most instances, a urine stream would break into droplets before making contact with the rail.
