Shocking for Worms?

Maybe I am out of the loop... but I had NO idea that people did this!!

Two people die in two days when they tried to use electricity to shock worms out of the ground.

My next question becomes who would let their five year old stick an electrical device into the wet ground to bring worms to the surface? He was five... wouldn't a shovel have been more appropriate??

So, I shared this story with some people, and they were like "oh yeah- this is a common practice" How many people missed the day in school where they talked about electricity and water not mixing?!?!

Waiting for a rainy day sounds much easier and by the sounds of it safer.
