READ THIS!!!! IMPORTANT FROM THE UNIVERSITY OF MIAMI HOSPITAL .....VERY SERIOUS WARNING...

I do this all the time! I guess I won't be doing it ANY more !



A few days ago, a person was recharging his mobile phone at home.

Just at that time a call came in and he answered it with the charging Instrument still connected to the outlet.

After a few seconds electricity flowed into the cell phone unrestrained and the young man was thrown to the floor with a heavy thud. As you can see, the phone actually exploded.

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

He was rushed to the 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! If you are charging the cell phone and a call comes in, unplug it from the charger and outlet.



Nevermind! I was wrong!

I don't know where the sunbeams end and the starlights begin; it's all a mystery.

Sounds more like this device was faulty. I have never heard of anything like this happening before.
