3 Electrocuted on Bus

KIEV -- Three people were electrocuted when a trolley bus driver tried to reattach electrical conducting rods that had come off power lines in the pouring rain, officials said Wednesday.

Two rods fixed to the top of the bus accidentally skipped off the power lines in the city of Donetsk on Tuesday. The bus driver was electrocuted when he attempted to reconnect them, the Emergency Situations Ministry said.

Two passengers who rushed to help him were also killed by the current, while another two passengers inside the bus were injured.
