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"
