Russian worker narrowly ESCAPES DEATH after 6,000-volt electric shock (VIDEO)
What could have been a tragedy turned into a small miracle when a bundler was electrocuted at a Russian ore dressing facility but survived the shock. The gut-wrenching moment was caught on film.
Footage released by Russia’s Investigative Committee shows several men dismantling a high-voltage cable at an ore-dressing complex in Murmansk Region. However, something goes dramatically wrong moments later, resulting in a sudden blast at the site.
One man – presumably the worker in question – sustained an electric shock as powerful as 6,000 volts, investigators said. He suffered severe burns to 60 percent of his body but fortunately survived.
