In this FREE webinar we introduce a recently recognized hazard to recreational boaters called "electroshock drowning" (ESD). The Dr. Alan Wentworth details personal experience in a "near miss" situation.

Human vulnerability to electrical currents is examined, and we review some of the causes of this hazard in our waters. We go into the difficulties that rescue and resuscitation present. Some safety measures and preventative electrical devices that are now available are reviewed.  Viewers are introduced to some electrical basics and jargon needed for full understanding of ESD. Informative signage and pamphlets are available and their usage is emphasized.
