HIGH TENSION WIRE.

FIVE ELECTROCUTED.

Berlin, July 8. When the live wire at Spandall snapped a group of workmen hurried to the spot. One of them proposed that they should have electric shocks, and ten of them accordingly joined hands, and one seized the end of the broken wire, which came in contact with the live wire overhead. All fell, five being killed and two seriously in(A cable message received a day or two ago stated that five people were killed and five injured at Spandall, Germany, as a result of touching a high tension wire).
