Voltage and current are not independent. They are related by Ohm's law ( or approximations to it for non-linear systems)You can't have one without the other.If you measure the peak current from a "static" spark you will find it's large. The point is that it doesn't last long.The lethality is a complicated combination of energy dissipated, the time scale over which it takes place and where in the body the current flows.
