Welcome to XXXXXXX
Electrocution might render a person incapable of his or her normal mental function. The person might be slow to think or talk. He or she might also be delirious, dizzy or faint. Dazed and confused condition.Problems with sight. these are all may be the reason of bright light.
Palpitation do occur with electric shock.
I advice you to see physician for examination as it is must and also get an ECG test done to get an info on his hart.
Hope I have provided the information you needed.
Wish you good health. Take care.
