Anytime you see somebody sitting on the third rail at a subway stop, things are bad. A Redditor uploaded the image of a possibly intoxicated man seated on the third rail at the 4th Street Subway station on Tuesday night. However, the uploader insisted that the man survived:
I notified the transit workers and they stopped all train activity until police came a few minutes later. I snapped this pic from far while police started moving the crowd away. In the end they arrested him and I could finally go home after a delay of almost an hour.
If you decide to go out and get wasted, make sure you have a group—or at least one friend—to make sure you don't end up on the third rail. Or any rail, for that matter.
