Good idea but it never says how he dies. He just cuts himself

The glass in a phone booth is tempered. He could never break it with his hands. If it did break, it would shatter into tiny pieces that would scratch him at most. Was the stick supposed to be a fishing pole ?

Yeah, it's supposed to be the fishing pole. I'm not a fan of this riddle or its premise either but it's really popular.

Who gestures how big something is over the phone, and what's the purpose of the stick in question? And is this man the Incredible Hulk or what? How is he that strong?
