If you believe some has experienced electrocution, follow these steps.
- Be sure the person is not in contact with the source of electricity. If they are, do not touch them.
- Call 911.
- Turn off the electrical source if possible. The best thing to do is move the source of electricity using cardboard, plastic, or wood to avoid shock.
- Check the person’s pulse. Begin CPR if needed.
- Lie the person on their back. Place their head lower than their core, and elevate the legs while waiting for emergency medical help. Do not touch any open wounds.
