Witness statement:
That’s what you get for hiring a random guy off the internet! We just moved our new TV and surround system into the basement after the renovation was finished. When I was setting up the TV, I noticed that the outlet behind the TV was still just the two-prong type – I told the contractor that I wanted all of them replaced with the three-pronged outlets. Not much I could do, and the game was about to start, so I plugged the new TV and surround into an old powerbar. I just cut off the third prong so it would fit the outlet. I told my son Peter to plug the powerbar into the wall. Peter let out a scream that I’ll never get out of my head! He fell to the ground and was unconscious but breathing. I called 9-1-1 right away.
