What if they threw him in a swimming pool?
Hard to answer that one.
Still, something humorous happened with an electrician working for the utility company in my area.
An accident occurred and the minivan lost control and hit hard an electric pole. The cables broke out at the top and were hanging producing sparks for a while to later be kept in calm.
Police arrived, the ambulance arrived, and after taking away the injured, the people still was making a circle around the hanging wires. They were in need of being cut off to move out the minivan.
The electricians arrived.
The dude who took the job to cut off the cables -which were two sticking together at that moment and another one alone a little apart-,took his pliers and gave a look around before cutting the cables. He noticed that everybody showed an afraid face to those hanging cables. He went to his truck and brought one of those cutting pliers with long arms. He put on his gloves.
He, smiling and full of pride, said, "what, what do you scare about?" and instead of looking at the cables, he continued looking at the people around while he was cutting the cables with his long pliers.
A dry sound was heard.
After that, everybody started to laugh.
And the laughs were harder when the electrician finally gave a look to the cables which were hanging the same, and noticed with a sudden shock that the pliers head was gone.
The cables were still alive and he didn't notice that two cables of different phases were jointed together.
He lost his pliers, but the people enjoyed having a good time after the minivan accident.
