Most of the cases we call “electrocutions” are actually electric shocks: an electric current running through a body. Whether an electric shock becomes an electrocution depends on the nature of the current involved. We’re conducting a survey of our viewers!

Hardly anyone knows, and those that do know don’t generally care; so here’s my question. Does it matter? Thanks to Matt
