Photo: Baby Dies After Being Electrocuted By Mobile Phone Charger
A baby girl was killed after being electrocuted while her parents left her to play on a smartphone that was on charge.
Now pictures of the tot’s scorched limbs have gone viral after nursing staff posted them on social media as a warning to the dangers of charging mobile phones near to young children.
They wrote: “Do not leave your babies unattended with chargers.”
The horrific death happened in the city of Aktau in Kazakhstan.
The baby’s mother, who has not been named, was asleep nearby as her daughter played with a mobile phone cord where the wire had become exposed.
She only became suspicious that something may be wrong with her child after waking up later when realising her little girl was not making any noise.
But by the time she arrived at the hospital it was too late for the doctors to do anything for her daughter as the tot was already dead.
“The girl started playing with the charging cable,” said a family friend, who has not been named.
“Apparently she put it in her mouth and started chewing it.”
It is believed the baby playing with the cable caused it to wear down and become exposed, leading to the child being electrocuted.
It is not known whether police are investigating the incident.
Earlier this year a 14-year-old girl from Moscow electrocuted herself after trying to charge her phone while taking a bath.
She was killed when the charger, plugged into an extension lead, fell into the water.
