Un maestro polaco que había venido a Inglaterra a mejorar su inglés, acuciado por una necesidad imperiosa, orinó en la estación, con tan mala suerte que la orina salpicó la vía electrificada. La corriente subió por el chorro, le entró por ahí y lo dejó seco.
Man died ‘urinating on live rail’
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.
According to Network Rail, more than 60 people are killed on railway lines each year.
