Did You Know?


It is highly unlikely to be electrocuted by jumper cables and a 12 volt battery as human skin can resist such low voltages. Also car battery voltage is DC direct current. 12 Volt DC is too low to cause harm. A much higher voltage (over 400 V DC) is needed. House voltage could electrocute, 110 volts AC alternating current. The jump leads shown would need to be connected to a domestic electricity outlet. This is never shown as we never know the locations. Car battery electrocution is a common script writer device.

Reggie Mastow: So, Max Paulson was innocent. I knew it was him. At least I thought I did. I betrayed the oath, Horatio. Killed a woman. You don't come back from that. Here I am thinking I'm doing the right thing, taking a murderer off the street, and I become the thing I despise the most.
