A teenager was killed in a small town in Mallorca after he urinated against a lamp post.

The 18 year-old, whose name has not been released, was attending a music festival in Bunyola, a town in the North-East of Mallorca. He relieved himself in the early hours of the morning against a lamp post.

However, the lamp post had developed a fault that meant it was live. The stream of urine acted as a conductor, delivering a fatal bolt of electricity that surged into the teenager’s body, killing him on the spot.

Emergency services attempted cardiac massage in an effort to revive the teenager, but no pulse was detected and the teenager was pronounced dead.

Jaume Isern, the mayor of Bunyola, sent his condolences to the teen’s family and the 30th annual festival was halted because of the tragedy.
