grounding to water pipes

Haven't there plumbers killed because of ground wires ran to the pipes? Must be because of the ground wires being improperly placed? Like maybe more 5' from the point of entry of the pipe to the earth or a break in the pipe such as a piece of plastic pipe before the pipe reaches the earth?
