Question – Shocked with the Circuit Breakers Off?
Why did my electrician get an electrical shock if he turned off all the breakers?

[ad#block]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.
