Hi, went back hometown for the long weekend and found out my small workshop padlock is broken. Might not be someone break it as the heavy rain recently might caused it since the lock is old. Nothing was stolen.

This raise a question, inside the workshop is a few electrical components where people gave us to dispose of and we try to fix it and sell/re-use it. The problem some of them are in very bad condition and the live wire is exposed. We use high voltage gloves and necessary safety precautions when working with these equipment.

The question is let's say a thief break in into my workshop, and stole a defective TV. Thief plugged it into his mains and proceed to die from electrical shock. I have CCTV footage of the thief broke in and stole my defective TV. Will I be held accountable if the TV is traced back to me ? Can the dead thief family sue me for his death ?
