What Is Electric Shock Drowning?
Electric Shock Drowning (ESD) occurs when AC voltage present in water passes through your body. Even a low-level of voltage can cause skeletal muscular paralysis, rendering the victim helpless and eventually resulting in drowning.
Electricity may be introduced to water in a variety of ways, including improperly wired pumps, boats, or lighting, improperly grounded wires, or stray current in the ground. This presence of electrical voltage in water is invisible, so it is crucial that water always be checked for voltage prior to swimming.
Each year we are made aware of more incidents where victims die or are severely injured due to electrical voltage present in water.
Children are especially vulnerable due to their smaller body mass, but men, women, children and even pets have been affected by Electric Shock Drowning.
It is impossible to know how many “drownings” occur each year as the result of electricity in water. Unfortunately many of these incidents are incorrectly recorded as a drowning rather than an Electric Shock Drowning.
How to Prevent Electric Shock Drowning
Due to the tragic nature of these injuries and deaths, Shock Alert was created to detect the presence of electrical voltage in water.
Shock Alert can save lives!
"We trusted our pool installers, and you always have the “it will never happen to us” mentality. Not only was the Shock Alert able to detect voltage in our pool, it was also able to help us locate the source. My husband and I are so thankful that we used the device before we allowed our children or grandchildren to swim in that pool!"
