WARNING: THIS IS SOME CRAZY SHIT.
YouTube: What we have here was a man trimming trees with a machete. He was slicing protruding branches but didn’t pay proper attention of the power lines. One of his swings caught a live wire and electrocuted him on the spot. His friend with help of a few neighbors tried to pull him out of the danger when said friend touched the high voltage wire hanging off the post.
You can see sparks on his skin as electric current runs through his body, sending him down to the ground. Woman in yellow shorts gets a zap trying to pull him out but gets out of there before it could electrocute her too. Others try to help the frying man with sticks but it’s not working out. Soon the body starts producing smoke — a clear sign that when the electricity takes a hold of a human, the consequences are brutal.
This took place in December of 2011.
