History of electricity is not more than 300 years old as also the mortality related to it. With time, the inventions dependent on electricity made humans depend on it. Ever increasing dependency on industry and domestic needs on electricity is also exposing man to the injury by electric current and equipments running on it. The other source of such injury is lightning, which is very much life threatening due to the very high voltage content. An injury due to high voltage is often very morbid in nature due to instantaneous high energy production upon the contact with the surface of the body. Here we present a case of burn injury due to high voltage transmission wire coming in direct contact with abdominal wall a child leading to burning of the abdomen, scrotum and penis.
