A participant in a Tough Mudder event in Buffalo got a bit of a shock when he clotheslined himself on an electrified wire partway through the race. The unidentified competitor was running through the field of wires, some of which carry up to 10,000 volts, in the Electroshock Therapy obstacle when one became tangled around his neck, pulling him to the ground.
