WHY DO PEOPLE GET SHOCKED?
 

Electricity flows through water almost as easily as it travels through the wire that brings electricity to your house.
Your body is 70% water. آ So if you touch electricity, it will flow through you, and you will be badly hurt.
The amperage of the electric current and length of time you're in contact with it, determines the injury.
 

THE TRUTH ABOUT ELECTRIC SHOCK
 

Electricity can shock, burn or kill you! You never know when contact with electricity will be fatal, but you can count on it hurting.
