…Woman Electrocuted while Answering her Charging Phone in China…



A Chinese woman died last Thursday after being electrocuted by her charging iPhone 5.
Ma Ailun 23 ,reportedly picked up the phone to answer a call as it was charging.
News surrounding her death went viral when her older sister posted it on Sina Weibo, the Chinese equivalent of Twitter. In her post, the older sister called on Apple to shed light on the concerning security risk of the iPhone 5 smartphone gadget unit.
“(I) hope that Apple Inc. can give us an explanation. I also hope that all of you will refrain from using your mobile devices while charging,” her post read, as quoted by Xinhua News.
“I want to warn everyone else not to make phone calls when your mobile phone is recharging,” she added on Sina Weibo.
“If the charger or the circuit has a problem, such as a broken wire, it can lead to a shock of 220 volts,” China.org.cn quoted an unidentified senior physics teacher at a Nanjing high school.
Meanwhile Apple  has vowed to look into the matter.
“We are deeply sorry for the unfortunate accident,” the company said in a statement, as it extended its condolences to the victim’s family.
The deceased’s family is seeking compensation from Apple.
