Technically, being electrocuted means being killed by electric shock. So, an electrocuted person is dead.

A person who has been shocked may experience deep burns, muscle spasms (electricity is how your brain tells your muscles to contract), and severe neurological effects. He may also experience ventricular fibrillation, or basically twitching in the heart. This will kill him quickly if not corrected with a defibrillator.

When did Benjamin get electrocuted?

He was not electrocuted by his lightning experiment (although the next person to attempt it died), but rather when trying to kill a turkey. He was doing an experiment at a dinner party to electrocute a turkey so as to not only kill it quickly but also to make the bird tender (muscles relax with such a shock). The experiment failed and Franklin was electrocuted. Of course, it did not kill him. He did this experiment in 1750 - 40 years before his death.
