I got electrocuted many times in the UK. I could go as far & say what I did intentionally when I was very young but I don't want anyone to copy what I did. Anyway what I learned is, if you are getting electrocuted do not attempt to pull away, you do not have full control of your muscles, you are frozen to the spot, you can't move. Just brute force focus & relax your muscle's & try & lean away from the apparatus.

What I learned is, you can release yourself. Never ever panic & try to force release, it does not work. Relaxation of the muscles is the key to releasing yourself.

I've been shocked twice. One time by 110 volt which is weird cause you can't let go of the wires easily. One time by 220 volt which is like getting shoved backwards.

  • The sprawling computer rig included at least 19 rigged up hard drives
  • It is believed to have exploded, electrocuting Danai while he was working on it

They refer to GPU's as hard drives a few times... you're telling me in all this crypto craze no one there caught it?

Also an explosion and an electrocution, must have been some kind of nuclear mining rig.

I also only see it in a few tabloid esque UK sites and not being reported anywhere else (one that is written like a hit piece calling him a "GREEDY" person in capital letters). I'm hesitant to believe this actually happened.

Death is sad but at such a young age is truly a tragedy, regardless of what he was doing.

Then you know what I'm talking about. Your whole complete body is frozen. I don't think you can even move your head, but I explain how you can release yourself.

It's like you have to relax your muscles & accept/welcome the electrocution, let it flow through your body, don't fight against it.
When frozen I have no sense of time of how long I have been electrocuted, but if I had to take a wild guess, I would say somewhere between 10 & 30 seconds. (230-240v).

ALOT.

Luckily I was never bitten by 440v 3-phase but can imagine that would leave a mark.

OK shocked, because I'm still alive.

What is the difference between shocked and electrocuted?

Many people use electrocution vs shock interchangeably. But the difference between an electrocution and an injury from an electrical shock is literally a matter of life and death. ... An electrocution means that a person has died as a result of an electricity

Agreed. Loss of life due to any type of accident is a tragedy.

For those of you who are into mining, please be careful when building and running your rigs. Use only certified cables and power supplies. Make sure that your mains are up to code and can handle the load. Test your breakers, fuses, or circuit interrupters on a regular basis. Ask an electrician for advice on things that you are uncertain about.

And yet, this is not the first accident:
the article and I stand corrected!

Regarding electrocution, I expected something like this to happen (if it hadn't already) but under different circumstances. something more like due to someone trying to steal power for one of the mega warehouse size mining operations. Like tapping into a neighboring business's power, essentially stealing power from them to fund their venture for free. same sort of deal maybe a indoor weed growing operation or other nefarious activities resort to. that is dangerous and ripe for someone to get fried to death. I never thought I'd hear it was someone in a random residential home from their single PC rig. but man that looks like a lot of GPUs so he must have a lot of power involved too and for all we know his sweaty hand made contact with something it shouldn't and zzzzapp! I tend to believe this is genuine, the poor gentlemen is dead, who would report falsely on a death that didn't happen? perhaps the details of how he died could be different, but I believe this is true, a brother is grieving over his impatient sibling not waiting 12 hours to fix his rig with someone more knowledgeable. I....just cannot relate to that decision making/thought process. Fortunately never been that hard up that I thought to do something life threatening to make income.


Rip..

At least he died doing something he loved.
The article read more like he was having some serious anxiety over potential loss of income, not because he just loves PCs/mining/electronics/etc. Ultimately, sounds like he paid for it with his life due to panicking over a days worth of mining income. That is just not worth it, ever, and even his brother tried to reassure him "it's OK" but to no avail. That is the saddest part to me, it was totally avoidable.

Eeeek! Even household voltage is a killer. People take for granted the safety features that keep even 120v from killing people left and right. Ive been bit by that. Its no fun. Glad to be here. Sometimes those voltages are deadlier, because people underestimate them.

My dad caught 277v phase to neutral off of the 480v 4 wire... industrial lighting. Threw him into the wall instantly. Like a 300lb bouncer. Lucky it didnt grab on.

My entire left eyebrow did get sent up a good 3 mm I believe. This is just laughable news, people get shocked everywhere but BTC made it end up here for some reason.

If you think this is funny, you are a fidiot. It is a sad loss to his family, mining does not deserve death.

Yes , it does. We just fail to capture it in legislation. Its abuse at the expense of others, plain and simple. Ask future generations how they feel given the current climate issues.

There I said it. Live and let live goes both ways. Mining is greed. Cant explain it any other way, sorry.. in 2014 perhaps, but now? No.

(...)you have to relax your muscles & accept/welcome the electrocution, let it flow through your body, don't fight against it.
My demon says exactly the same thing. Let it flow, don't fight.

Electricity is a bitch. I do quite a lot of electrical work and have been tickled numerous times, so at some point I started to only work on devices connected through a class-B RCD (GFCI for you Yanks). I'm not a practicing electrician but I have an appropriate license I got some years ago just because there was an opportunity and I wanted to learn something new. A guy I attended the course with went on to get his high voltage licenses, got too cocky and got vaporized by 110kV. Vaporized as in "only a small part of his body was found in the ash". Household 110/230V will kill you just the same as 110kV, it will just take more time, which is a false sense of security since your muscles will contract and you will involuntarily hold on to whatever shocks you until you die. Respect things which can kill you.
