We report a case of a unilateral sub-trochanteric femoral fracture resulting from an accidental electric shock: an unusual injury. It is well documented that fractures occurring from electrical injuries commonly involve the upper extremities; those affecting the lower limb have rarely been documented. Such injuries need to be identified and treated without delay.
