**That's an old one. It has been analysed and decided that the situation is
probably not life-threatening. Stupid and POSSIBLY dangerous, but unlikely
to be deadly. If an ELCB has been fitted to the home, then it would be a
non-event.

** Really -  who analysed it  ???

I can immediately see two scenarios where a fatal shock can be delivered.


#1: An acidic drink is spilt all over the phone/fax and someone standing in
the pool tries to wipe it off with a wet cloth. Depending on just where the
drink goes inside the unit, the spill it may become live and pass enough
current to kill.


# 2.  The phone fax is pulled into the pool by someone tripping on the AC
lead  - then someone standing on the wet ground just outside the pool tries
to lift it out of the water and places their hand near the AC inlet.
