Bob's electrical shock.
Your friend, Bob Hall, leans against the electric track of the electric loading shovel. The shovel lights go out and Bob convulses. The mine floor is wet. You want to help Bob, but you need to protect yourself too. Note: this exercise is similar to the Bob's loader accident, which is designed for surface coal miners.
