In a shocking accident, caught on CCTV, a man got electrocuted after a live wire fell on him. The incident took place on a platform at the Kharagput railway station in West Bengal.
Reportedly, the man, a travelling ticket cexaminer (TTE), received burn injuries after he was electrocuted by a live wire that fell on him while he was standing on the platform.

The horrifying incident was caught on CCTV camera, and it is doing rounds on social media.
The clip shows the TTE, identified as Sujan Singh Sardar, speaking to someone on the platform with his back facing the tracks. Out of the blue, a live wire comes hanging loose from behind and touches him.
