A man was electrocuted while trying to cut a live wire from a Meralco post in Tondo, Manila on Friday morning. Edwin Talaman was found hanging and entangled on the post by investigator Dennis Turla of the Manila Police District. His charred body was brought down from the post by members of the Bureau of Fire Protection. Talaman earlier asked his neighbors if he could cut the electric wire dangling in front of his house. He had told the neighbors that will sell the wire. While working on the post, Talaman trembled and became unresponsive.
