Just a point of pedantry, but if you've been electrocuted, your survival
probability is zero by definition. The word you're looking for is "shocked".

"Electrocution" is a contraction of "electric execution". Go read up on the
history of Tesla and Edison and the AC vs DC battles for the full story.

I wrote this story myself, It's all about a girl who lost her reputation, but
never missed it.
