Has anyone ever been electrocuted by their toilet?

I've heard of people being electrocuted by their faucets, but what about the toilet?

    People have NOT been electrocuted by their faucets.  They have been grounded by their faucets while holding a faulty or defective electric appliance.  GFCI breakers, outlets, or appliance plugs are now used to prevent this from happening.  Toilets have no electrical parts and you can only be grounded if you have your hand in the toilet or have a continuous uninterrupted stream connecting a faulty electrical appliance to the toilet water through you.

    If they have they  will not  answer here.  Electrocution is by  definition being killed by  electricity.  If they  were they are dead.

    Never heard of either happening but with more bells and whistles, I could see it happening at some point.

    NO ONE has ever been electrocuted by a faucet. The water provides a ground, but is NEVER the source of the electrical current.

    Ceramic is an insulator, so it protects you from receiving any jolt of electricity should the metal pipes its attached to ever become electrified, unlike faucets, which are a direct conduit of conductive metal to those pipes.
