NOKIA cell phone explodes killing user...

Feb 5 - Since we all use mobile phones very regularly, we need to be careful and must keep safety in mind at all times.

A few days ago, a young man was recharging his NOKIA cell phone at home. Just at that time a call came in and he answered it with the instrument still connected to the electrical outlet.

After a few seconds,  electricity started flowing in unrestrained, to charge the cell phone, .  The surge was so high that the young man was thrown to the ground with a heavy thud.




Watch slide - Damage done by one careless mistake


His parents rushed to the room only to find him unconscious, with a weak heartbeat and burnt fingers.

He was rushed to a nearby hospital, but was pronounced dead on arrival.

Cell phones are a very useful modern invention. However, we must be aware that it can also be an instrument of death. Never use the cell phone while it is hooked to the electrical outlet!
