Investigator releases report into electric shock of Denishar Woods

Independent regulator Building and Energy has released its final report into the March 2018 incident that led to the near-fatal electrical shocking of Denishar Woods at her Beldon home. Metallurgical experts helped Building and Energy prepare the report, which found the shock resulted from the failure of a neutral mains conductor - although it could not conclusively determine how it failed.

Energy Minister Bill Johnston said, "I urge anyone who experiences shocks or tingles from fittings in their homes to call Western Power immediately on 13 13 51 or, for those located outside the South West Interconnected System, to call Horizon Power on 13 23 51."
