Police: Man Stealing Copper Wire Got Fatal Shock

January 7, 2011

OK, so copper prices are going up. Is the price of anything going down?

Police say Freeman tried to snip the live wires with a bolt cutter, but suffered a high-voltage shock . . .

Did I read that correctly? tried to snip live wires with a bolt cutter? Really? and he expected to live through it? Wow.

    This really is not uncommon. My father-in-law had parts of a tractor stolen, just for the metal.

    That’s sad Sandi!

    I think the uncommon part here was the guy wasn’t smart enough to take any precautions against the electricity flowing through the copper. *shaking head*
