Did anyone see this? I just read about it. I don't watch TV, so I have no idea what's going on in the world. The internet is pretty good, but it didn't inform me about this.

I just read the Wikipedia article and it said "An ambulance transported him to a hospital where an EKG showed that the electrical shock had caused an irregularity in his heartbeat."

I guess this is kind of a physics question and a medical question.
1st, the suit he was wearing was supposed to be protecting him from the shock. And if it wasn't, how did he endure getting shocked for so long? Was it only partially shocking him?

And the "irregularity in his heartbeat" is permanent?

Thanks.
