Charged is the true story of Eduardo Garcia, who survived a horrific accident while hiking in the Montana backcountry in 2011. Garcia was hiking when he came across what he thought were the remains of a baby bear, which he reached down to touch with his knife. The bear was laying across a live power line and Garcia was charged with 2400 volts of electricity, losing an arm, ribs, muscle mass, and nearly his life. Look for the full film, from Phillip Baribeau and Implement Productions, in late 2016.
