    A narcotics traffic stop on the Downtown Connector turned deadly Saturday afternoon when a man climbed over the interstate railing, fell about 35 feet and was decapitated on a wrought-iron fence, Atlanta police said.

    Officers in a marked car stopped the man about 4:30 p.m., as he drove south on the interstate above Auburn Avenue. The man, who has not been identified, stopped his vehicle and tried to flee by climbing over the railing, Lt. Danny Agan said.

    Police still are investigating whether the man jumped or fell off the raised interstate.

    "This is a new one for me in 29 years," Agan said.

    The decapitation shocked people who work in the neighborhood. Gary White, an income tax preparer, came out of his office when he heard the commotion. "It's surreal," White said.

    Agan said narcotics officers had been trailing the man for much of the day.

    Agan did not know if the officers who tried to arrest the man would be placed on administrative leave. "This is not something normally covered under the [standard operating procedure] of the department," he said.

    Origins: The item quoted above, about a man who was decapitated when he climbed over the railing of an interstate highway while fleeing police and fell onto a wrought-iron fence, describes a real incident that took place in Atlanta on the afternoon 15 February 2003. (The text was taken verbatim from an article which appeared in The Atlanta Journal-Constitution the following day.) Several members of the Atlanta Fire Department who responded to the call verified that the pictures displayed above were indeed taken at the scene of the incident.

    I'm curious about something. The position of the head on the fence suggests that
    his body would land inside the fence. The positoin of the body suggests he was facing
    toward the fence when he contacted it.
    My question is," How did his head end up facing out toward the body,
    did it spin around or what?"
    Better brains than mine may have an answer. Color me curious.

    Maybe his body cleared the fence and he hit the back of his head on the way down?
    Whatever the case... Just unreal

    Welcome Snuffy!

    DO you think the head part of the man would remain conscience for even a few seconds after that? Like to know what went through his head at the end...

    He might have thought, "This is gonna hurt." Then again, it might have been "Owie." Or maybe "MOMMA!!" But me, I think it was a spike. [raspberry]
