Barikad crew electrocuted during Kanaval

A video recording shows that during the three-day long carnival festival "Nou Tout Se Ayiti" (we are all Haiti), a large float for a band named the Barikad Crew was performing beneath a series of high-voltage overhead power cable. When the procession was passing the presidential stand packed with spectators, one of their singers who was standing high on the float, attempted to remove the high voltage wire with a pole. All of a sudden, he came into the contact of a wire that sets off a bright flash of light and he was dead. A sudden panic caught the people around the float and they started running helter-skelter.
