    The best thing to do when someone is in contact with a live cable is to switch off the power and call for help. This is because the live cable poses a serious risk of electric shock, which can be fatal. By switching off the power, you eliminate the source of electricity and reduce the risk of further harm. It is important to call for help as well, as the person may need immediate medical attention. Pulling them away from the cable can put both the person and the rescuer at risk of electric shock.

This ensures that prompt action can be taken to minimize the potential damage caused by foreign objects or substances in the eyes.

It is crucial to notify others about the situation so that appropriate actions can be taken promptly to ensure the safety and well-being of the person in distress.

Calling the emergency services will ensure that the person receives the necessary medical help as soon as possible. Sitting them down, lying them down in the recovery position, or giving them painkillers may not address the underlying cause of the stomach pain and delay proper medical intervention.
