    Hell yeah! Hell no!
    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.

    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.
