An unidentified man urinating onto the subway tracks at the Broadway-Lafayette station in Manhattan’s Soho neighborhood early Tuesday morning managed to avoid electrocution by directing his pee stream away from the third rail while relieving himself, the New York Daily News reports.
But unfortunately gravity and a Far Rockaway-bound A train that couldn’t brake in time finished the job that electricity couldn’t even start. The man was pronounced dead at the scene by police. Hate to end stories on a downer like this but then again fate awaits all of us. It’s only what we do before it that matters. When it’s all over, who among us that has not drunkenly pissed on the New York City subway tracks at 1:30 in the morning can ever say they have truly lived?
