NEW YORK (AP) _ A naked man was electrocuted on subway tracks in Harlem after he pushed another man onto the tracks and fought with a third man who tried to help, police said.

Police responding to a 911 call around 3:30 Saturday afternoon found the naked 35-year-old man unconscious with ``severe trauma throughout the body,`` lying on the electrified third rail of the train tracks. Emergency medical responders pronounced him dead at the scene.

Police said the naked man, whose name was not released, had pushed a 43-year-old man onto the tracks. When a third man jumped down to help, the 35-year-old man followed and had started to fight with him when he touched the third rail and was killed.

The other two men, whose names were not released, were taken to a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
