Here in Santa Barbara, CA, a 12-year-old boy somehow got past locked gates, barbed wire, etc. into an SCE 
substation and climbed one of the 16,000 volt structures where he got electrocuted.  He survived (REAL lucky, 
considering nobody could get in until SCE guys can with the key)!  He was at the LA burn center (maybe USC) 
for a couple of months and only lost one arm and maybe a leg below the knee.  Doctors aren't quite sure what 
the long term affect is going to be, but the boy doesn't seem to want to talk about it yet.  Look up newspaper 
articles up to about 2 months ago in our News-Press.  Good luck!
