When Electricity met Plumbing (too bad it wasn't Harry met Sally)

As Murphy would have it, the plumbers were drilling through the cement
wall and slightly nicked the electric line. Once the pipe was in the
hole, it made contact with the hot electric wire. In two seperate
cases of plumbers doing their job, the wrench on the pipe (now at 240
volts), sparks were seen and jolts were felt. Praise God nobody was
hurt. Murphy also made sure that this happened when the power from
the city was out and the generator was being used and has a higher
voltage (240) compared to the city voltage of 200 volts.
