If the Element shorts to ground, turning the Oven OFF may not help.

Info from the YouTube Video author:
 
".. my oven went supernova on me while the heating element was burning.
It had been doing this for about a half hour.
Management told me not to touch the stove or I woulda flipped off the breaker.
Figured I'd get some pics and a video while it was doing its thing.
It decided to try to kill me near the end."

That was pretty amazing.  I never got to see one going out in action and never heard of one ever lasting that long,  WWWWOOOOWWW!!!!!!

Enough time to actually record it and get close in there and had to touch the range to get bounced back like that.

The circuit breaker is what you go to immediately in this situation, trying to turn the oven off you could get shocked by just touching the knob, (good chance you would be ok, most of the knobs are plastic but you want to be safe). 

The circuit break switches at the circuit box and touching the circuit box cover/door shouldn't be any problem.

I don't go near those broken elements until I hit the breaker.
