Poor documentation threw doubt on any logical explanation
for a double drowning that involved electricity
After returning from a trip around a lake in the eastern U.S. and docking the twin-hull pontoon boat they were riding in, three boys decided to jump in for a swim. The afternoon dip turned tragic, though, when two of the boys seized up as soon as they entered the water, reportedly paralyzed by electric current in the water. Unable to move, they drowned. The third boy was pulled to safety by a friend.
