A naked man in the midst of a violent rampage in a Harlem subway station died when he touched the electrified third rail during a chaotic melee with two other straphangers, police said. 

The unhinged person was wandering through the 2/3 station at 110th Street and Central Park North when he randomly pushed another straphanger onto the tracks at around 3:40 p.m., police said. 

A second straphanger jumped down to help the victim, when the nude attacker jumped onto the tracks — and began pummeling the good Samaritan, police said. 

During the scrum, the attacker made contact with the third rail, and was killed, officials said.

A train was entering the station at the time, but did not make contact with the two surviving straphangers, police said.
