Electrical Shock - 16,660 Volts
In Feb 1996, these pictures were taken of a guy who is high on PCP and attempting
to kill himself. The situation lasted for about 45 minutes. This being toward
the end of the situation, this person had already defied death by walking
from a previous power pole by means of tight rope walking on the low voltage
wire and hanging on to the other wire that was around him. The Power Company
had de-energized the low voltage wire at this point. What you see now is this
guy ascending to the next level of HIGH VOLTAGE wires. Unfortunately for him,
the wires above him are energized at 16,600 volts WYE system. "for all
you overhead junkies"
