Thousands lose power after suspected wire thief is badly shocked


About 14,000 San Bernardino residents lost power early Saturday morning after a man shocked himself himself while trying to steal wires from a Southern California Edison substation, according to police.

San Bernardino police received a report around 2 a.m. of a blown transformer at the substation at Rialto and Stoddard avenues. When officers arrived at the scene, they found a man who had apparently been shocked by up to 33,000 volts of electricity while trying to steal wiring.

The man, who was not identified, was taken to a nearby hospital where he is in grave condition, police said.

About 14,000 customers lost power right after the incident, according to an Edison spokeswoman. Crews are working to repair the damage and about 600 households are still without electricity.

Reminds me of a call I handled in the 3500-block of W. Cermak Rd. Call comes in of "assist CFD." I get there and there's a crowd in the alley. When I walk up I see a young black male, sitting flat in the alley with his legs in front of him. I also noticed his hair was smoking. Turns out he was trying to "steal" electricity by running a direct wire from the pole to the house, bypassing the meters. Apparently he came in contact with the 10,000 volt primaries and it knocked him off the pole, depositing him on his ass where I found him sitting.

Best part was his girlfriend yelling at him as he was being wheeled to the ambulance. "And you should've known better...seeing as this is how YOUR BROTHER DIED!"

Yes, you guessed it: his brother didn't get zapped off the pole. Brother had apparently "Rode the Lightning" until they found the Crispy Critter (or what was left of him) still holding onto the 10Kv lines.

God, these fuckers are stupid!

He had to be black, 33,000 volts is simply not enough to kill a fully grown black man.

Ok, her are the standard line I can come up with. Feel free to add on.
He was really wired.

Shocking behavior.

Re-volting situation.

He asked the Officer "Do you mind if I smoke"

What was he charged with?

Here hold these cables my car needs a jump.

He gave a glowing report.

He was a well grounded person. Maybe not?

Was it the same guy who stole the 4 reels of wire from that city of chicago warehouse last year?

hilarious animal that nigger

I do not know whole stole the wire at the warehouse and I deny any accusations about it even though I was the alarm and camera guy and neither of these systems were working at the time of the theft by others

Only recently have I returned to work after my accident of falling up the stairs and tearing my shoulder to return to that location to try and once again repair the alarm for the new agencies who now reside in that building who displaced over 100 electricians who worked in the building prior to the wire theft

I do love a happy ending. I watched a you-tube video of some dumbass rag riding on top of a train grabbing the primary power line. Current went through him to ground through the train, and he fell off the train, smoking and burning. I couldn't think of an appropriate, witty comment at that time. Thanks for all the suggestions you guys made. Better late than never.

If you try to steal wire from a live power line, you voted for Obama.
