Be careful and check your cables when charging your electronic devices, folks! It is super important to replace any faulty cables you find to prevent any serious injury to yourself. Sadly, that’s what recently happened to this young girl.
This unfortunate young teenage girl who was living in Hoan Kiem, Vietnam shockingly died because she got electrocuted by her phone cable.
According to China Times, 14-year-old Le Thi Xoan had gone to bed as usual on November 12 and plugged in her white iPhone 6 to charge in preparation for the next day. She had the habit of placing the phone on her bed while it was charging and that was when tragedy struck.
Her charging cable reportedly had some tears in it and she didn’t realise it when she plugged it in. The tears revealed the wires underneath, which exposed Le to the strong electric current. As soon as she placed her phone on the bed, she got electrocuted when her body came into contact with the deadly current. Oh dear!
When her family members found her, they quickly rushed her to the hospital but unfortunately, it was too late to save Le and she passed away. The police who investigated her case suspected that the cause of her death was electrocution due to the faulty cable. When authorities checked her bed, they found the cable, which had black burn marks.
However, they could not determine whether the cable is an original item from the Apple store, or one of the many cheap replica cables that are widely available. Authorities will continue investigating this tragic incident.
Always check your cables carefully before charging your phones and make sure to never charge your phone on your bed. It could prove to be fatal!
