A 30-year old man was walking home from a bar in Brooklyn when nature called. He decided to relieve himself onto the third rail of the G train in the subway station at Union and Broadway in Williamsburg. He was electrocuted and killed.

Matthew Zeno, 30, was walking with a friend along the tracks for the southbound G train around 3:10 a.m., at Union Avenue and Broadway in Williamsburg when the horrific accident occurred, cops said.

His 26-year-old pal tried saving him and was also shocked, police added. The friend was able to flag down MTA workers, who in turn called for help, sources said.

The two men were rushed to Woodhull Hospital, but Zeno couldn't be saved. His friend was listed in stable condition. [NY Post]
