Daily Mail: California man killed after touching power lines while trying to take a photo to post on Facebook

A California man is dead after authorities say he accidentally came in contact with power lines while trying to take photos of the sunset to post on Facebook.

Family members of 27-year-old David Strohm Jr. spent hours searching for him Saturday night after he’d posted a photos on Facebook of the sunset about 6 p.m. When he failed to return home, his friends and family frantically called his cell phone and went door-to-door looking for him.

Early Sunday, the family continued the search, which is when they found his cell phone on the grass underneath a tree he frequently climbed. About 8:40 p.m. they saw his body perched in the tree and resting against the power lines.

Darwin was correct regarding the survial of the fittest in the animal kingdom, however, having been made in the image of God, human beings are different. In a reversal of animal Darwinism, some of our finest people have in fact died so that others might live - non-survival of the finest and fittest.

My condolences to the Strohm family. It is the nature of young men to climb trees, climb mountains, fly jets and even ride rockets to the Moon. Without the natural curiosity, creativity, drive and courage of young men like David Strohm we would still be living in caves.
