This video, which is apparently by History.com Channel, shows a man called "Electric Mohan" from Kerala, India who doesn't get harmed when electricity flows through him.

Is it possible for any human being to withstand electricity of 3 Ampere, 220 Volts? Is the person (or the video) doing some trick?


  • The video is "blocked in my country" ( USA). Can you give a citation for the original source? A random YouTube video is not a notable claim. – Ernest Friedman-Hill Jul 3 '15 at 19:54
  • nomenagentis is right that this is a duplicate of that; but I'm not allowed to vote to close this as a duplicate, because that doesn't have an upvoted or accepted answer. – ChrisW Jul 3 '15 at 20:44
  • According to this comment not being able to close as duplicate is a feature not a bug, i.e. this question should be allowed because the earlier question isn't helplful. – ChrisW Jul 3 '15 at 21:08
  • @ErnestFriedman-Hill If you Google for 'Electric Mohan' there are a lot of search results (some of which e.g. this one repeat the claim as if they believe it true). – ChrisW Jul 3 '15 at 22:02
  • @Oddthinking I'm confused? This has been closed as a duplicate because it's been asked before and has an answer, but the duplicate mentioned doesn't have an answer? Also it seems like several comments have been deleted, but other comments referencing or answering these deleted comments have been left. Is this just to confuse people intentionally? – superphonic Sep 23 '15 at 11:35
