Electrical burns. Charred skin and flesh on a patient's hand and arm caused by an electrical burn. The nails (white) have also been destroyed. This is a third-degree burn, as the skin and underlying tissues are destroyed. Severe burns can cause the victim to go into shock, which can be fatal. The loss of skin also increases the chances of infection. Burns victims need to be kept hydrated and the burns must be kept clean.
