    Chiang Mai - Four children were electrocuted from short circuit from welding shop when they swam in a canal near the shop, police reported.

    The accident happened at 4 pm in Saraphee district.

    Their bodies were found floating on the canal near the welding shop. They were identified as Saneh Chumchai, 11, Kornwit Luangoonjai, 10, Netr Khanthawong, 9, and Pitchaya Khampao, 10.

    Police said the shop owner would be charged for negligence causing death.

    Police said the shop ground their electric welding machine and after it rained, the current apparently leaked to the bridge over the canal and electrocuted the children in the canal.

    Now I am not a licensed electrician but that just don't sound right to me. My whole house is grounded and we have no bad effects from it except you can open the reefer or touch a computer or any electrical appliance barefoot and never get a jolt from it.
    All things electric should be grounded.
