Question – Shocked with the Circuit Breakers Off?
Why did my electrician get an electrical shock if he turned off all the breakers?
If the electrician has turned off all the breakers in my apartment, why would he get an electrical shock from the wiring in the light in the hall?
It would seem that there was a circuit that was still energized. I can only speculate that he overlooked one circuit breaker, or another source of power to that area.
