Woman Nearly Electrocutes Herself in Siberia (Video)

A YouTube video showing a woman falling as a live power line sizzles nearby. (Caution: Russian profanity 18+)

Those Russian dashcams are at it again!

A woman crossing the street in Biisk, a Siberian town located south of Novosibirsk, was captured having a harrowing moment recently when electric sparks surrounded her on the road.

The woman was nearly electrocuted after a truck with a crane cut the wire of the city's trolleybus line.

In the video, posted online last week but apparently recorded in April, the woman falls to the ground with her bags, sparks flying all around her.

The driver of the vehicle whose dashcam recorded the incident can be heard swearing profusely at the truck driver. "Have you lost your [expletive] mind," he screams. "How the [expletive] are you driving?"

No word on what charges, if any, were pressed against the truck driver.

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.

Your support, no matter how small, makes a world of difference. If you can, please support us monthly starting from just $2. It's quick to set up, and you can be confident that you're making a significant impact every month by supporting open, independent journalism. Thank you.
