In the list of things you probably should never experience in your life, even if you're sozzled to oblivion, dangling upside down from an active power cable is probably near the top.

Holy freaking smokes, almost getting hit by a train doesn't get closer than this.

Miraculously, two guys managed to pull her out right before she would've gotten hit. It's terrifyingly close. Read More >>
