Stray Voltage Around the City
November 5th, 2009
Within a quarter-mile of Gotham Gazette’s offices, there were 103 incidents of stray voltage in the past 21 months. Five of them were potentially fatal, and one shocked a person or a pet.
We know this due to a new map from the Jodie S. Lane Public Safety Foundation that lets you search for stray voltage around the city. The foundation was formed by the parents of a woman who was killed after being electrocuted by stray voltage from Con Edison’s system. The data for the maps are culled from reporting requirements that the city implemented after her death.By Mike Muller on November 5, 2009, 9:40 am
