I am researching a script for the television series "Mysterious Ways." In the story for this episode, a person is taking a bath when a working radio falls into the tub. The person convulses, reacting to the electrical current in the water, but miraculously, survives. So my question is: how might that be possible? Is there some reasonable explanation? What might have prevented/interfered with total electrocution? Perhaps something to do with the kind of material the tub is made from? Or something in the bathwater? The soap the person had covering his body at the time? Any ideas, no matter how farfetched, would be much appreciated.
