(iWIDK By Bob Bachelder) - An ex-marine has died in an incident involving alcohol and train tracks.
Zachary McKee, 27, of Ossian, Indiana, died after being electrocuted by train tracks while he was climbing them in order to find a place to urinate.
According to CBS Chicago, McKee was visiting friends in Chinatown and was heavily drinking throughout the day while attending a Chicago Cubs game at Wrigley Field.
McKee had direct body contact with the third rail, which resulted in his death.
McKee was an ex-marine who had served in Iraq and Iwakuni, Japan. He left the marines in 2010 after four years.
He was working towards his undergraduate degree in political science and government at Indiana University-Purdue University at Fort Wayne.
A friend, Zach Powers, tweeted on Monday morning, “Going to miss you Zachary W. McKee, you were truly a great friend.”
