The victim was electrocuted after he crept into a recess to relieve himself.

It is thought his urine splashed on the line and he died instantly when a 750-volt charge leaped up at him.
that is a horrible horrible way to die (in accidental deaths category)...

Actually, Mythbusters dispelled that myth (dying by peeing on an electric rail) on one of their shows. He probably stepped on one of the rails.
