Six Things NOT to Do to an Electrocution Victim

If you are with someone who is electrocuted, here is what NOT to do, according to the National Institutes of Health:
· DO NOT touch the victim with your bare hands if the person is still in contact with the source of electricity.
· DO NOT remove dead skin or break blisters if the person is burned.
· DO NOT apply ice, butter, ointments, medications, fluffy cotton dressings, or adhesive bandages to a burn.
· DO NOT touch the skin of someone who is being electrocuted.
· DO NOT get within 20 feet of someone who is being electrocuted by high-voltage electrical current until the power is turned off.
· DO NOT move a victim of electrical injury unless there is immediate danger.

Lets all be safe.
Thank you.
