William Johns,a boy of 19 and a state level football player chose this “Indoor Bike Trainer”, as the best way of body-warm up.The reason he show cased was that it gave him an opportunity to warm –up along with providing facilities of watching national and international matches to improve his playing statistics.His coach MrJames Brown warned him a number of times to avoid using this for security reasons,a number of cases have already come into news headlines at that time.A very stubborn and performance focussed player refused to listen to all these.He was at the edge of doing anything to improve his performance.As days increased his practise hours increased.Time came when William became so much addicted to these equipment that he started spending3-4 hours over this instrument and as days were passing his fondness towards this latest technology was following an increasing graph. A poor William never knew that his increasing was going to take away his life, he was completely unaware of the fact that his days were getting numbered.
One fine morning it happened that owing to repeated cycling the wire insulations came off, the friction that was produced created Eddy Current and when William started exercising this power was transmitted to his body. He was subjected to 440 volts current for about 2 minutes before someone came and turned the switches off. William’s body was severely burnt. He was taken to the country’s best hospital where he was declared as spot dead. William’s death shocked the entire nation.
