He was an experienced climber. Of utility poles?

Most. Graphic. 'Lectrocution'. Article. EVAR.

A Minneapolis Star Tribune report says a witness saw Steven C. McKinney on the ground in flames. His arms were burned and blood was running from his mouth.

A+++, would read again.

Summer good climbers, summer not. Autumn make them wear springs on their shoes in case they fall.

♪ I should be allowed to think
 
And I should be allowed to blurt the merest idea
If by random whim, one occurs to me
If necessary, leave paper stains on the grey utility pole ♫

Kaylin Graff lives near the intersection where McKinney was hurt. She says she heard his friend yelling to get water, and she saw McKinney engulfed in a ball of fire.

I fell into a burning ring of fire
I went down, down, down and the flames went higher
and it burns, burns, burns
The ring of fire
The ring of fire

He was knocked to the ground and a transmitter exploded,

Are they sure he was not climbing a radio tower?

Also, if he was "electrocuted" he would not be alive.

Time to send journalists back to basic English classes. That, or restore the function of the copy editor. I copy edited my high school paper and was amazed at the crap that came in from the reporters.

Why do people not know that electrical lines carry large amounts of electricity?

Because they seem not to.

I have been black-out, pants pissing, stumblin', bumblin', fumblin' drunk on a few occasions in my life and I have been eyes slightly glazed, goofy grin on my face buzzed many more times, but I have never been so drunk that I thought going out and climbing power poles was a good idea....Darwin is just waiting for the guy in TFA to meet his inevitable early demise.

/also never been drunk enough to do karaoke, but that's another post

He should be charged and placed in a dry cell.

Transformer, not transmitter...

APB on this man, seen leaning against said utility pole, a few minutes before the 'tragic, senseless and unexpected loss'...
