Teen Dives Off Dock Into Water, Doesn't Realize What She's Done Until It's Too Late

A 15-year-old girl from Alabama had her life taken from her in a horrific fashion after her and a friend went for a swim in the lake near where they were picnicking. According to Mad World News, the friend would come out unharmed, but the other teen would never return to the surface after jumping in.

Carmen Johnson was spending the day with friends at Spring Lake, and she would decide to take a swim with a female friend. The pair would jump in off of a nearby dock, and Carmen would submerge herself in the lake. She would never return to the surface, and her deceased body was discovered some time later by rescue crews.

Further investigation revealed that Carmen was killed as the result of an electric shock. Nearby boats and docks that are running electrical appliances were essentially leaking currents into the water, and the tragic accident was possibly the result of a poorly installed or maintained device.

Those that leap into the water too close to a source can quickly become a conductor for nearby electrical currents, and the reported effect on Carmen was similar to if she had leapt into a bathtub with a plugged in device in her hand.
