Officer shocked by lighted airport railing

City paramedics took a Honolulu police officer to the Queen's Medical Center in serious condition Sunday after he was shocked while leaning against an illuminated railing while at a traffic post on the H-1 freeway just past the Hono-lulu Airport's eastbound onramp.

"He's all right," said HPD Capt. Andrew Lum.

Paramedics were sent to the scene at about 6:30 p.m., a spokesman for the city Department of Emergency Services said.

Close to 30 motorcycle officers escorted the ambulance to Queen's.

The Traffic Division officer was staffing a security post for one of the dignitaries on Oahu for the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation gathering.

Heard these DOT types down at city hall saying that this was the countermeasure put in place to prevent copper thefts. I'm guessing what I heard was a bad joke...
