It's not the voltage it's the current. Under dry conditions human skin/body has a very high resistance, something like 10k Ohms so a small voltage can't push the current through it. However, broken skin or wet the resistance drops low enough that even a small voltage can push the current (only need 50mA+ ?) through to kill a person.

That's theory, on practice I never had a client so much as get a shock from this sh1t. I had clients that jumped into sea (salt water, even worth than tub) with their phone, I had clients had jumped into river, got wet in the rain, etc. None of them so much as get a shock. So I don't believe this getting eletrocuted by phone in a tub thing. If you do it with a notebook I can see you getting a good shock, I can even see you getting enough current and getting killed, but not with a fvcking phone. For those brake enough out there, wet your fingers and touch car battery leads, you will not die.

This brings me to my next thought, murder.
