The saying goes that for men the world is your urinal. C’mon you know you all do it and I think you love that it is so easy for you to pee anywhere you please, since you come equipped with a point and shoot model. Well you better be careful where you point it because a man literally peed himself to death after a car crash left him with only minor injuries.
Man urinated on live wire
MONTESANO (Washington) – AUTHORITIES believe a man was killed by accidentally urinating on a downed power line after a car crash.
Grays Harbour County sheriff’s Deputy Dave Pimentel told KXRO-AM radio on Monday that Roy Messenger was not seriously hurt after he collided with a power pole on Friday and called a relative to pull his car from a ditch.
However, family members found 50-year-old Messenger electrocuted when they arrived.
Mr Pimentel says Messenger apparently urinated into a roadside ditch but didn’t see the live wire. The urine stream likely served as a conductor, allowing the electricity to reach his body.
Mr Pimentel says there will be an autopsy but burn marks indicated the way the electricity travelled through Messenger’s body. — AP
