Name: Ma Xiangang
Ability: Safely conduct and store electrical currents through his hands
Place of Origin: Daqing, Heilongjiang Province, China
By all accounts, Ma was watching television with his wife one day when the cable went out. He went to fix it and grabbed one of the exposed wires without even realizing it. When he noticed, he realized that something was off. He should have been hurt by the electric current passing through his body. Instead, he felt nothing. It was concluded that Ma had a skin condition that left him with hands much like insulated gloves. They keep the current passing through his hands at 6 milliampres when the safety limit for most people is 8-10 milliampres. Today, Ma gives "electrotherapy" massages with his gifts.
