A FRENCH amateur photographer has been hospitalised in a serious condition after receiving a powerful electric shock while shooting soft porn on top of a freight train.
The 25-year-old photographer broke into a railway marshalling yard in the northern French city of Reims along with another photographer and a young female model on Tuesday night in the hope of making the most of the original location.
He was alone on the train's roof when he was shocked and is now in the major burns unit of a Paris hospital.
"He has more than 50 per cent burns with serious lesions," a Reims police spokesman said.
Reims police have opened an inquiry.
