A hard-hitting video has been released about the dangers of trespassing on a rail line or anywhere near high voltage electricity.
Here in Trafford we have train lines through Urmston and Flixton including the train lines at Altrincham and of course the metrolink line.
If you end up on one of these lines you are seriously putting yourself in danger, even if you don’t die which many do! your injuries could be life changing.
Even if you do get lucky and escape death or serious injury trespassing on a train line or tram lines is an offence which will land you in court no matter what your age and likely to be handed a £1000 fine.
Power lines are around 100 times stronger than the supply you get at home, and these lines are never turned off!
One of the things people are not aware about is that electricity can jump, its an invisible killer! so you can be killed stone dead without touching anything!
9 out of 10 people die because of being on a rail line, are you going to be next? is that what your mates want for you? maybe one of them will be next and you will have to live with the horror of seeing your best mate pinned to a rail crying and you could not help him, or watching him or her become so seriously injured you are physically sick, it will change your life forever…..think!
Never mess around live rail lines! for more information please click this LINK
