9 seconds later, their conversation is interrupted by a high-voltage cable that falls on the man carrying the black suitcase. Sending a stream of electric volts ripping through his body. As the electric cable can be seen whacking his upper torso, causing his clothes to briefly burn as he falls backward onto the railway tracks below. As the man, he was talking to scampers away for safety.
