Police in the town of Čerčany to the south-east of Prague have said that an 18-year-old male was found dead last week at the train station after riding on the roof of a train. The man was apparently electrocuted by the train’s contact wires, which have a charge of 3000 volts. The police are continuing to investigate and have ordered an autopsy. A valid ticket for part of the train’s route to Prague was found in the young man’s possession.
