Ever wonder what it's like to fall on the third rail? Just ask Andy Morris, who was thrown onto the tracks in East New York: "He first started twitching and then you started seeing smoke coming from his head." Ouch.
Morris, "a down-on-his-luck construction worker", got into a drunken fight on Monday with two other men that lasted for about 10 stops on the A train. According to the Daily News, the brawl moved onto a station platform and Morris was tossed onto the tracks allegedly by an onlooker.
He first started twitching and then you started seeing smoke coming from his head," said Marlon Probherbs, 23. "You could smell the flesh burning."
I just heard a commotion," said Probherbs, of Brooklyn. "Then I saw him go flying off the platform and he went face-first onto the third rail.
No arrests have been made, and Morris is recovering in the hospital. He told the paper that his "fingers are fried". [NYDN]
