Solution

The statement given is a true statement. This is because the water in the water bodies in which we swim are good conductors of electricity. Also, a wet person is more conductive than a dry person. Due to this, our body inside the water will become very prone to lightning strike. It could cause severe burns or might kill us if lightning falls on our wet body.
