    Default Angry Man Killed Trying To Cut Power Line

    Too bad the below person was not Sheldumb. ns

    NY Resident Used Industrial Saw

    POND EDDY, N.Y. -- New York authorities say a man was electrocuted
    Saturday when he tried to cut through a downed power line with an
    industrial saw.

    Authorities say the 64-year-old Pond Eddy man was drunk and ignored
    repeated orders to stay away from the cable.

    The accident happened in the presence of firefighters who had been
    guarding the fallen line. The Sullivan County public safety commissioner
    says officials chased the man away from the line several times before he
    fetched the saw from his house.

    Authorities say the line fell in a storm Friday and had been down for
    about seven hours while utility crews tended to damage elsewhere.

    I have a hard time seeing this as an "accident".

    I have a hard time seeing it as his outpouring of grief over Jelena
    Jankovic's poor showing at Wimbledon. What? Nobody said it had anything to
    do with Jelena Jankovic? Well, nobody said it was an accident, either.

    I suspect they will look at his unlying medical condition. Could it be
    he was termial and thought a good way to leave the family some cash,
    an accident, yes that's it, and in front of lots of witnesses.

    Quoting the article:

    "The accident happened in the presence of firefighters who had been
    guarding the fallen line."

    IMO it wasn't an accident -- it was the result of egregious
    ****headedness.

    Clearly, it was negligence on the part of the firefighters
    who were already aware of this man and his unsafe activities
    with regard to the power line. Knowing that, and having
    taken responsibility for keeping the public away from the
    power line, they failed in their duty. I'd find in favor
    of plaintiff for 2.5 gazillion dollars. :-)

    Clearly??
    What were the firefighters supposed to do to keep him away? I am not
    sure what they mean by an "industrial saw", but that implies it was
    powered, and since the line was down I am assuming it would be gas
    powered. That would be quite a weapon to use against unarmed
    firefighters. I suppose they could have tried lethal fore to stop him
    from getting himself killed. I would suggest that repeated warnings
    would fulfil their responsibility. I suppose that if the family can
    find a lawyer sleazy enough to try to take the case to court the
    firefighters could counter sue against the estate for the trauma the
    suffered from witnessing Darwinin theory in person.

    I'm glad you put a smiley at the end. How many times did someone
    have to tell the guy to stay away from the line before the message
    was clear? He was drunk and angry that his electricity was off,
    and he was gonna show "them", by cripes. Natural selection.
    Go sue Mother Nature.

    I will bet that the emergency response team of the local law firm that
    has their pictures on every city bus telling people they will "help
    them" will have a different opinion.
