Life or Death

3 Children Rescued from Pool with Electrified Water

This video depicts the frightening occurrence when electric voltage is introduced into water. If you prefer not to watch, here is the timeline of the video:

0:06 – Child 1 is electrocuted
0:13 – The father’s heroic response rescues his daughter (not advised)
0:15 – Another child is still in the pool
0:27 – Another man heroically rescues his granddaughter (not advised)

Did You Know?

WATER CAN CONDUCT ELECTRICITY

Improperly installed lighting, improper grounding, or faulty wiring are only a few ways electrical voltage can be introduced to the water where your family swims.

THERE ARE NO VISIBLE WARNING SIGNS

Swimming in electrified water can cause paralysis, leading to the inability to swim or tread water. As such, most Electric Shock Drowning deaths are incorrectly recorded as “drownings.”

EACH YEAR AN UNKNOWN NUMBER OF ELECTRIC SHOCK DROWNING DEATHS OCCUR

Dangerous or even deadly voltage in water is completely invisible…and once you jump or fall in it’s too late.

WATER CAN BECOME ELECTRIFIED INSTANTLY

Stray voltage in the ground; a boat with faulty wiring that plugs into shore power – if there is electricity in the area there is always a risk.

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.

Electric-Shock-Drowning-Icons

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

DO NOT SWIM IN MARINAS

A boat with faulty wiring could enter the water near a marina at any time. Heed warning signs in these areas and do not swim.

HAVE POOLS INSPECTED

Pools and docks with electricity nearby (lighting, boat lifts, pumps, etc.) should be inspected twice a year.

LEAVE ELECTRICAL WORK TO THE PROFESSIONALS

Always use a Certified Electrician for inspections and electrical work near water.

USE SHOCK ALERT TO TEST WATER FOR VOLTAGE

Shock Alert will notify you of electricity present in water. If it beeps and flashes red, DO NOT SWIM. If it flashes green, no voltage is detected.

Due to the tragic nature of these injuries and deaths, Shock Alert was created to detect the presence of electrical voltage in water.

"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!"
