Pilot ejects crashing plane, lands on hi-volt power line

A Belgian F-16 fighter jet crashed in France on Thursday. Authorities say both pilots onboard ejected but one of them got stuck on a high-voltage power line after his parachute became caught. The power line was high voltage at 250,000 volts, as per reports. The man was eventually retrieved from the power line after a two-hour rescue operation.

Do people comment on a title before even reading an article? The pilot was rescued from the power line, he's alive.

Out of all the places that unfortunate pilot could have landed... It was live Transmission lines.

There is no rescue. Unless by some miracle they're insulated lines, he's dead.
