Electrocution after pee near pole

04jul03

A THAI man with a prosthetic leg was electrocuted when he urinated near a power pole on the side of a highway in Bangkok.

The 27-year-old victim's father told police they had stopped their car near a toll booth during a rainstorm yesterday, after nature called.

Transport officials told The Nation newspaper that the victim's prosthetic leg could have acted as a strong conductor of electricity at the spot, which was not an authorised parking zone.

Thawil Phuengma, dean of engineering at King Mongkut's University of Technology said the man probably urinated on an uncovered ground line near the pole
