Drunk Man Looking For A Fight On NYC Subway Gets Thrown Onto Third Rail And Electrocuted. [VIDEO]
Witness tell investigators Morris was intoxicated and arguing with a younger man. In addition, at one point they claim, either the younger man or yet a third man shoved Morris onto the tracks, ultimately causing him to smack his head on the live third rail which carries 625 volts.
Smoke emerged from Morris' face and his body twitched violently. Witnesses who saw the entire incident told PIX 11 News they were certain he was killed.
Police sources say two civilians were climbing down onto the tracks when the first officer to arrive at the scene ordered them out for their own safety so electricity could be cut off to the area. Morris was reportedly unconscious and unresponsive when first removed, but he was still breathing.
