If Someone Has Been Shocked Or Burned By Elec
1.Tell an adult to pull the plug from the outlet or to turn off the power at the fuse box or circuit breaker.
2.Call for help (usually 911). Tell them it is an electrical accident.
3.When the victim is not in contact with the source of electricity, and you’re sure there is no danger, tell an adult to give first aid:
If the victim is not breathing, give CPR or mouth-to-mouth resuscitation.
Loosen the victim’s clothing. Keep the victim warm and lying down until help arrives.
Don’t touch the burns, break blisters, or remove burned clothing. You cannot tell if there are electrical burns inside the body, so be sure the person is taken to a doctor.
