Answer

A bimodal distribution of electrical injuries exists among the very young (children < 6 y) and among young and working-aged adults. [13] Patterns of electrical injury vary by age (eg, low-voltage household exposures among toddlers and high-voltage exposures among risk-taking adolescents and via occupational exposure). [12, 13, 14]
