A little boy named Harley Sutton-Dormer is lucky to be alive today after receiving an electric shock. The shock was due to a faulty hairdryer in the changing room of the Belhus Park Leisure Centre swimming pool in South Ockendon, Essex.
The hairdryer sent a bolt of electricity through Harley´s body. His mother said it was an awful experience because he was shaking and screaming. The clothes he was wearing were charred and he now has an exit burn on his side.
A paramedic said the Croc shoes Harley was wearing saved him from being seriously injured. This is because the shoes stopped the electricity going through his legs. Harley suffered burns from the shock. An investigation is now being carried out.
