    I said, it's no fun being an illegal alien. Fine the contractor or better yet arrest him.

    I have been electrocuted. It does not always kill you. Depends on the voltage and grounding. But, I was not hospitalized, so this man does sound in bad shape. Pray for him.

      NO. ELECTROCUTION ALWAYS RESULTS IN DEATH. IF YOU'RE STILL ALIVE, YOU WEREN'T ELECTROCUTED, YOU WERE SHOCKED. LOOK UP 'ELECTROCUTION' IN THE DICTIONARY. PRISONERS SENTENCED TO DEATH ARE ELECTROCUTED, NOT JUST BADLY SHOCKED!
