I think that 10kv on a phone line would make the bell coil vaporise,
rather than ring.
A solid state phone would surely have no chance of ringing, unless it
had bloody good overvoltage protection ;)


Maybe we could try this on the lines into telemarketing call centres ?

Electrician's mistake kills 2, injures 13 in southern Azerbaijan
30 September 2009 [12:17] - Today.Az
An incident has killed 2 and injured 17 in the Azerbaijani southern
region of Jalilabad (200 km outside Baku).

An electrician of the Jalilabad region electricity distribution
network connected 10,000-kV electricity transmission line to the
telephone line while fixing electricity transmission line in the
region's Badamagaci village.

As a result, telephones rang at 30 houses simultaneously. The electric
strike killed 18-year old Orkhan Badirov and 64-year old Dilshad
Jafarova who took the telephone.

A total of 13 injured people were taken to the hospital. They were
discharged after initial medical aid. The Jalilabad region
prosecutor's office is investigating the case.

The Jalilabad Region Prosecutor Mobil Ismayilov said the 10,000-kV
electricity transmission line fell on the communication line at 20:00
on Sept. 29 and all telephones rang without break at houses of the
Badamagaci village. Over 10 people who took the telephone at that time
were injured.

Two of them - 18-year old Orkhan Badirov and 64-year old Dilshad
Jafarova died at the hospital.

Ismayilov said the case is under investigation.

11Kv on the phone (in common-mode) line could possibly power an electronic
ringer by ground capacitance.

I did start thinking along that line some time after I made the post.
The part about the "constant ring"
("telephone rang without a break")
was a clue to that, where a fake up story probably would state that
the phone rang normally.

Its not as though one side of the line is earthed at the phone, (dont
know about azerbaijan phone network wiring)
so yes.

When the victim. picked up the phone and held it against their face,
HT voltage could possibly arc across to their lips or ear via the
speaker / mic through their body to earth. lips in particular due to
more moisture.

I would hate to be the electrician.

Must have been a strong guy to bring the tower down or had good
resistance to break the live cable and drop t.

I checked snopes.com, but couldn't find anything.

I also tried the Azerbaijan White Pages, but they're not online:

An Iranian friend tells me that their old phone sockets and mains
sockets were identical. Sometimes a telephone would be mistakenly
plugged into a mains outlet, resulting in one loud ring and immediate
failure.
