Electrician Ed Manthei recounts his experience with arc flash, which left him with 50/50 chance of surviving. The arc flash occurred while changing out a breaker on an eye-line panel-board. After verifying that the wires were dead, he tied off the loose wires. The arc flash occurred shortly thereafter.
