Lay people have notion that a person touching a high power line gets ‘stuck’ to the line . Is this true ? If not , what is the fact ?

Ans. No , it is not true . The fact is that a current of even a few milliamperes is enough to make our nervous system inactive for a moment . The result is that the affected person is unable to remove his hand off the live wire and so it is thought that the person has got stuck to the line .
