You're right but he still wouldn't be able to go near the cable once it's on the ground...

The potential curve around the point of contact is sufficient enough that, if you stand with one foot closer to the cable, a current would flow up one leg and down the other.

Having traversed any soft tissue that might be in between them.

Ouchy.
