Here is some safety advice if you ever come across someone who has been electrocuted:
- NEVER touch a person who has been electrocuted AND is still in contact with the faulty electrical equipment
- Turn off the electricity supply immediately
- If you can’t find the supply or don’t know where it is, you can attempt to remove the casualty from the electrical source with a non conductive material such as a wooden broom or a nylon rope.
- Call 999 immediately if the casualty has been unconscious or is severely burnt.
Always remember SAFETY FIRST!
