His wife says the power cord was frayed. That too could've been a possible explanation for that tremendous jolt. If he wouldn't have used that 2-wire adapter, God only knows, I think that he may not have been shocked (again, I am not sure because of the frayed cord).

BTW: The B&D trimmer is a model #8100 13" single-edge unit.
