9. Electric shock
If a person near you is being electrocuted, don’t try to pull them away from the source of electricity with your bare hands. It is a danger to your own life.
- Unplug the electrical device.
- Push the person away from the device using something that doesn’t conduct electricity. You can do it with a wooden or a plastic stick (for example, the handle of a broom) or by wearing rubber gloves.
- If there is no danger, don’t touch the person and call the ambulance.
- If there is a danger of being electrocuted a second time, pull the person away from the source of the current at least 30 ft.
