11,000 Volts of FAIL

This Darwinian winner literally took a zap out of crime.

A man was killed trying to steal a copper cable which was carrying 11,000 volts, an inquest heard today.

Kirk John Thompson was electrocuted at the derelict Panteg steelworks, in Pontypool, South Wales, when his bolt croppers pierced the plastic coating of a cable still connected to the National Grid.

As Wallace said to his dog, "Cracking toast, Gromit!"
