Boy Electrocuted

Yahoo has a sympathetic story:

Teachers have led tributes to a 13-year-old boy who died after suffering a 25,000-volt electric shock at a rail freight depot.

[The boy] is thought to have been on the roof of a train when he touched the overhead cables – “arcing” a massive power surge downwards.

He may as well have just shot himself in the face. What an idiotic thing to do.
