A naked, emotionally wrought man was electrocuted on a subway third rail in Harlem on Saturday after he shoved a man to the tracks and jumped down himself to prevent the man from being rescued, eyewitnesses told the Daily News.
The man shoved to the tracks and a good Samaritan who tried to rescue him were saved.
Around 4 p.m. the crazed man — completely unclothed despite the January chill — appeared on the platform of the Central Park North/110th St. station and began gyrating and dancing next to random people, said a witness who made video of the incident and asked not to be named.
“He came up to dance on me, but I told him to get lost,” said the witness, who said he had seen the naked man at the station before and believed him to be homeless.
Next, the naked man found another person on the platform and began dancing next to him.
“That man felt disrespected, so he squared up like he was going to fight the naked man,” said the witness. “When he [the naked man] saw he wanted to fight, he started hitting him like crazy.”
A train approached the station.
“The man just lost his balance and the naked man was able to push him into the train,” said the witness. “He fell in a way that knocked him temporarily unconscious.”
When another straphanger jumped down to the tracks to save the shoving victim, the naked man jumped down to the tracks after him.
The naked man scuffled with the rescuer, said the witness. The good Samaritan, angry at having his rescue efforts interrupted, “just whacked the hell” out of the nude man, said the witness.
“It was a heavy punch,” the witness said. “That’s when the naked man fell.”
The naked man hit his shoulder against the third rail, said a second witness. The third rail carries 625 volts of electricity — more than enough to instantly kill anyone.
“I don’t even want to think about it,” said the first witness. “He didn’t die with any pain though. He died immediately. The shock was just too much.”
Police confirmed the incident, and said no one involved was charged.
