Lies, Damn Lies and Statistics
It seems that 3 months ago, a woman walking her dogs in New York City was electrocuted (think RAID - kills bugs dead) when she stepped on a manhole cover that somehow was wired into the Con Edison power grid. Freak accidental death, you say.
Well, ConEd decided that maybe they should do a little snooping around to make sure no one else gets a little jolt. CNN reports:
The company inspected all of its manhole and service box covers following Lane's death and found "no stray voltage at 99.95 percent of the equipment," according to Con Edison spokesman Chris Olert.
Well, Phew! Given that the city has 260,000 manholes, that equates to only 130 electrified manhole covers in the city. Happy walking, New Yorkers!

But how many of those are of a level sufficient to cause electrocution? And one wonders how somebody managed to contact a metal cover and something else simultaneously. A dog walks on four legs, and it seems none of my shoes have conductive soles. Walking around barefoot is just asking for something to happen.
In one of the labs, we have two desks with built in power strips. If you touch both, you get a shock. Seems to be power line leakage too.
