Mud bath soothes man who made shocking fix

Do-it-yourself home improvements are a risky business as one Battambang man discovered on Monday when he was electrocuted while fiddling with wires in an attempt to install electricity in his home.

The electrocution prompted the man to run away and coat himself with a layer of mud to ease the pain. The home remedy, however, didn’t prevent him from passing out shortly thereafter.

The unconscious man was sent to the hospital by his neighbours, and is now recovering from the shock.
