Emmerdale: Tom survives electrocution
After finding out Belle had secretly undergone an abortion, Tom lost all control of his temper and proceeded to head to the barn to let off some steam.

He trashed the barn with a crow bar in a fit of rage. However, his final hit proved to be nearly fatal when he electrocuted himself. Tom was knocked unconscious and his heart stopped.

Paddy found him in the barn and revived him. Rhona then headed over to Dale Head to inform Belle of her husband’s accident. Belle was at that moment trying make a getaway from her abusive husband. Tom was taken to hospital, where he scarily told Belle he is never leaving her.

Will Belle proceed with her plan to leave Tom?

“Tom deserved that, but so glad he’s not been killed off, that would be the easy way out for him. When the truth gets out, Tom needs to be arrested. Feel so sorry for Belle, she nearly managed to escape,” one Emmerdale fan posted on Instagram.

A second agreed: “Hope he doesn’t lie and gets his comeuppance the proper way to set a good example to those who are actually going through something so abhorrent (the good example being that they can get proper justice).”

“That’s the least you deserve Tom!!! Just wait til the Dingles find out Emmerdale,” one fan said.

Someone else also explained: “This would have been too easy for his exit, he needs to suffer first.”

“Villagers need to know what he has put Belle through and what a nasty piece of work he is. So they can tell him to his face. Apart from that most of them won’t believe it after he has died. They still think he is Mr Wonderful,” One more added.
