BOYLE HEIGHTS – A man in his early 40s suffered electrical burns and other major injuries early today in Boyle Heights after being shocked by a high tension wire and then falling an estimated 100 feet onto pads placed on the ground, authorities said.
A Los Angeles Police Department Hollenbeck Division officer said the man climbed an electrical pole at the intersection of Marengo and North State streets about 1:50 a.m.
The “officer” said the man touched a 360-volt line about 3:15 a.m. and was thrown off the pole by the shock and struck a traffic light during his fall.
Both the officer and a videographer at the scene said the man had begun to descend the pole, but then changed his mind and climbed up again.
The videographer said the man was sitting on a ledge of the pole, then pushed himself sideways and grabbed the high voltage line.
The videographer said the man’s fall was broken by one of two rescue pads set up by Los Angeles County Fire Department firefighters.
The man was taken to a hospital, where he was in critical condition, said Officer Liliana Preciado of the LAPD’s Media Relations Section. -CNS

    Stop talking about how they didn't rush over. Do you really think he'd survive about 30k volts through his body, just before a 125 ft fall onto the hard ground/dirt? I wouldn't. Clearly this was a mistake as he survived, but still 499 times out of 500 he'd be dead.

    They thought he was TOAST…that's why they didn't bother to rush to his aid!

    It's about the body language that speaks volumes about a certain callous indifference. I can understand how that can or must develop over time from coping or being able to cope. But what's clearly illustrated here is that the job saps ones soul. They themselves are not aware of it. It's in the body language. No ones fault particularly, it just bites.

    Usually when a body touches power lines the heat generated in their abdomen causes liquids to instantaneously turn into steam and pressurizing the abdominal cavity until it bursts, Essentially making them explode like a pizza roll left in the oven too long.

    I’m still watching. At about 8 minutes (I’m bored). Here is what I cannot fathom whatsoever . . .
    Humans can and usually survive a “shock” but as a rule, humans touching and part of power lines, it is over. Are you sure he wasn’t a fried dead man walking?
