Is it true that a person touching a high power line get struck with the line?

Amritha Asked:

Is it true that a person touching a high power line get struck with the line?

Answer:

Ya, This is due to the strong contraction of the muscles making the person not at all able to release the wire or object from which he got the shock. Not due to any type of attraction arising out of electricity.
