Electricity and Water is Dangerous
Water itself does not conduct electricity - electrons can flow by connecting to atoms and molecules in the water.
Water itself does not conduct electricity
When water comes into contact with an electrical circuit it can begin to allow some of the charge to leak out of the device.

This is also why it's important to keep water away from electrical appliances.
