Emmure singer Frankie Palmeri electrocuted onstage

Tuesday, May 07, 2013 12:42 PM PT


Emmure were forced to cancel their show today in Moscow, Russia after vocalist Frankie Palmeri was electrocuted on-stage. Fortunately, Palmeri, though a bit shaken up, will be alright. Guitarist Mike Mulholland had the following to say via Twitter:

I'm so sorry to all of our Moscow fans who came to see us tonight, the stage was unsafe and electrocuted @FrankiePalmeri. We will make it up... he will be ok but the stage wasn't wired safely & shocked the shit out of him. A sad day for us but we'll make it up."

Palmeri later offered the following:

"Sorry I almost literally died on stage tonight #Moscow. Getting zapped by 200 volts feels like shit. Ya almost got me tonight. #STILLALIVE"


UPDATE: Footage of the incident has made its way online:

200 volts? That's nothing. It's the amps that get you. Stun guns are thousands more volts than that.

^^^^^

No, electrocuted implies that he was shocked with electricity. Not all electrocutions are fatal. Ever hear about someone surviving a lightning strike? That's a million times worse than what happened to Admiral Emmure.

Literacy is awesome. You should get your GED and give it a try.

hey, the literal definition of electrocution is electric shock halting bodily function resulting in death. If you do not die of an electric shock, it is simply termed being shocked. I majored in electronics and engineering, there is an actual difference.

If he was electrocuted he would be dead and we'd both be happy.

get it? Russian Tesla over emmure?????



Seriously though, since I am an electrician, anyone here ever get hit by 3-phase 480volts? It's like getting hit in the back of the head with a sledge hammer. that was a 60 amp load too. That's the equivalent of welding your own feet to the floor. Good times. Took me all day to stop shaking.

200 volts = pssy.

200 volts is totally capable of killing you depending on the resistance said current is traveling through. With a small amount of resistance the current will end up getting massive. Really one is dependent upon the other. So its the current (Amps) and the voltage that kill. Either way I really wish he would have died.

Considering that common electrical panels overseas are operating 220V 50Hz at 6-8A (if it's industrial rated) the dude is super lucky. Anywhere from as little as 250-500mA across your chest at any voltage will stop your heart.
