NEW YORK, NY - JANUARY 29: People wait for a subway at a Manhattan station on January 29, 2013 in New York City. The city has been experiencing a rash of high-profile incidents involving individuals being hit by trains in suicides, accidents and people being pushed to their deaths. Lawmakers are planning to discuss the recent deaths while also seeking ideas for more safety on the tracks. The New York City subway system, with 468 stations in operation, is the most extensive public transportation system in the world. It is also one of the world's oldest public transit systems, with the first underground line of the subway opening on October 27, 1904. (Photo by Spencer Platt/Getty Images)

This is a cautionary tale about what can happen when you urinate in public.
Early Monday morning a man in New York City died electrocuted while he was peeing on the subway tracks.
According to the Daily Mail, 30-year-old Matthew Zeno had been out drinking until the wee hours of the morning when he made a life-ending decision.
Authorities said he had been to numerous bars with friends before his death, but were not sure what led Zeno to walk along the underground subway tracks.
The New York Post reported a friend who was trying to save Zeno was also electrocuted and sent to the hospital.
The friend, who is in stable condition, was able to get the attention of some subway workers who called for help just a little too late.
