It wasn't a toaster , Brendan ,but it was bad enough , a friend of mine , years ago , we were both still in high school , decided to take a bath instead of a shower , after some work around his Dad's house , didn't pay attention , filled the tub , didn't see the power cord , for his Dad's electric shaver . His Dad had the habit of leaving the power cord plugged in , would just unplug the shaver when he was done . He got in the tub , he said he felt himself go numb , yelled for his Dad to get in the room , his Dad spotted the power cord end in the tub , in the water . He unplugged it right away , got his son out , my friend told me it took him about two hours , to start feeling anything again .They did not repeat that mistake ever again .
