Melbourne Man Dies While Train Surfing

Could this be a nominee for a Darwin Award?:

THE coroner will investigate the death of a 20-year-old man who died on the top of Melbourne train overnight.

Police say the Werribee man was train surfing.

It is believed the man got onto the roof of the train at Newport railway station, in Melbourne’s west, just after 1am (AEST) this morning.

The body was then seen by passengers at Flinders Street station in Melbourne’s CBD around 8.30am (AEST) today.

“He was electrocuted and we believe he was train surfing,” a Victoria Police spokeswoman said.  [AAP]

Stupid doesn’t begin to sum this one up.
