Man electrocuted trying to steal copper wire

A strange story has come out of Southern California.  It appears as if a man and a woman were killed and injured, respectively, while trying to steal copper wiring from the walls of a vacant building.  Most likely, the couple thought that the power was off when they tried ripping the wiring from the walls.  Neighbors were awakened when they heard a woman screaming and found her wandering around, severely burned and asking for help for her husband.  Her husband, however, appears to have been killed.

Copper is a valuable metal among scrap metal dealers.  So, the theft of copper wiring has become a very common place thing in the tough economy.  However, this one appears to have gone very wrong.  The couple’s two children were found in a truck parked near the vacant building.
