The body of a young man was found on the metro tracks in the French capital, Paris, at night from Friday to Saturday. According to the mayor of the 15th arrondissement, the victim is a minor and could have been electrocuted.

At about 1 am, the police received a call about two people who were in the tunnel under the Sèvres-Lecourbe metro station and were planning to break into a service room that was unusable.
When the officers arrived at the scene, they ordered the two people to appear several times, but to no avail. The two ran and ended up on the subway tracks. The officers could not track them down, as they did not have the authority to enter the bars. The search was canceled overnight, without any success.
The victim was electrocuted
When the subway station reopened at about 5:45 a.m., a subway driver discovered a charred body on the rails. In an interview with the French newspaper “Le Parisien”, the mayor of the 15th arrondissement, Philippe Goujon, stated that the victim was a minor and may have been electrocuted as a result of the formation of an electric arc (Sudden release of energy by electric current.). Investigations are now underway to determine if the victim was one of two people previously wanted by the police.
“Young people often try to break into the deserted room late at night,” Goojun says. According to the mayor, who described the incident as “extremely horrific”, the place was thus known to the police and the agents had to intervene several times.
The accident disrupted the metro for some time.
