Western Daily Press - 14 August 1999
Karate fan and self-employed motor electrician Ian Norton, 25, was killed by the punchbag he had set up in his new basement flat in Weston-super-Mare, Somerset. When he rewired his gym room with new light fittings, electric cables made contact with the metal chains from which the bag hung.
On 7 August 1999, he returned from a night out and gave his cousin a tour of the flat. He put on the lights in the gym, completing a deadly cicuit. When he casually hit the bag, he was floored by 240 volts and died instantly.

Just throw rock at it and it will go away.

I would pick bag work over masturbating, fighting over sex, and KOing someone over having a orgasm!

I live about 8 miles away from where that happened. I laughed so much when I read that...

Really Sam? It sounds a little bit fishy to me -- how could a punching bag conduct? I mean, yeah, the chains would but what was he punching, a metal bag?
Any more details?

I know a guy who fell two stories because he walked out the window *whilst chasing his girlfriend's cockatoo* that he inadvertently set loose. He survived, but was in a body cast for a while.
Truth is always stranger than fiction.
