Vietnam's Electric Man electrocuted

A Vietnamese man who once appeared on national television to demonstrate his ability to resist electric shocks has been electrocuted while repairing a generator, an official said on Tuesday.

Nguyen Van Hung, aged in his early 40s, was killed in Tay Ninh province near the Cambodian border while repairing the generator without first cutting the power supply, a local official said.

Hung, nicknamed “Hung Electric”, had appeared on television’s “Strange Stories of Vietnam.’’

I'm surprised more people are not killed in Vietnam by electricity. As someone who lived there for two years there is no such thing as an electrican. Anyone with a screwdriver some gaffer tape and some pliers is an electrican.
