When asked for a comment Mr. Chavez stated "Me and my friend Felipe made it all the way from Ecuador to the Mexico / Texas border on top of the trains and we were fine. When I saw that cable on top of the car I thought it was a handrail and I grabbed it. AY CARRAMBA!!!!!!!!!

This guy must be Fidel Castro's love-child; they both have overstayed their welcome. BUT...before we punch his return ticket we should check his pomade, might be a good insulator and have some industrial use. Just look what horses did for the glue industry.

He can't still be normal after that much voltage (not that he was to begin with). He has to have some mental capacity loss. I say we need a follow up story CT post.

I'm sure an eager lawyer will sue because the Metro North people didn't post a sign specifically saying "No Rido on El Toppo of El Traino"
