Woman Passes Away After Phone Drops Into Bathtub

By Grover Koelpin 100 comments


Whats up friends and welcome to Inform Overload. Im your host and Pompadour Prince, Johnny
Rogers. If you happen to be new to the channel we
find the most interesting news stories on the internet and then we make them more entertaining. Plus dont forget to stick around until the
end because I will be answering some of your comments from previous videos Weve all been guilty of not being able to
just put our phone down even at the most inconvenient of times. Whether its texting in class or taking the
browns to the superbowl. However, for one woman, I bet she never would
have expected just how dangerous it would be to use her phone while taking a bath. The 20-year-old woman known only as Anastasia
was found dead by her mother in the most shocking of manners. She was holding onto her phone while it was
plugged in charging while she was in the bathtub. The mother had just got home from work and
tried calling out for her daughter, but when she didnt hear anything she began frantically
searching her home. The mother said – I saw Anastasia lying in
an empty bath, in one hand, she was holding her mobile phone plugged into the socket,
and in the other hand she had a bath plug. I thought she was alive but unconscious. I called the ambulance. Paramedics came very quickly but they could
only register the death of my daughter. The coroners reports suggest that the woman
died from a severe electric shock, which isnt even the first case of this sort of thing
happening. Russain authorities have confirmed that in
just over a year this has been the fifth case of people dying from using their plugged-in
phones while in the bathtub. All of those cases are very horrific to learn
the details of, but one in particular really scared me. A 14-year-old girl died after dropping her
charging phone into the bathtub which electrocuted her causing the girl to drown. Each of these cases are young women either
scrolling through social media or using their phone for music when this happens. Tragically in all of these cases its their
own mother who has to find their child in this state and by the time they do its already
too late for paramedics to save them. I cannot stress how important it is that you
just take a moment away from your phone. Especially if its charging, especially if
water is involved. Do not let the pull of your phone result in
your parents finding you dead in a bathtub. Electronics engineer Andrey Stanovsky warned
people that – relaxing in a bathroom with your mobile phone plugged in is like playing
Russian Roulette.- Water is a really good conductor of electricity, so its just really
dumb to be handling any electronics around any water. We keep covering stories like this and I keep
saying the same thing, we need rules for phones. We need a list of etiquette or safety procedures
that are digestible for people to understand and act on if they so choose. I want to hear your thoughts on this story
though so comment down below with some phone safety or common sense tips that you have
or find helpful. Lets collaborate in the comment section to
teach others perhaps something they didnt know. Maybe Ill combine the top 10 best safety tips
and put it out. Now lets check out some of your comments from
the video titled – Scientists Released First Ever Image Of Black Hole! The Space guy says – At least ask the cosmos
out to dinner before taking a pic of its hole.. -Did you expect scientists to know how to
talk to a black hole? Youre right though Ant Man 1101 says – All we need now is johnny
Rodger telling everyone that he is a stand up comedian
-My name is Johnny Rogers and Im a stand-up comedian. There I said all that you needed. Are you happy? Marsh Mallow Dub says – Fake. The black hole is a paid actor
-Seems legit Willys Toys says – Send R. Kelly there please
-Willys Toys getting savage in the comment section, youre right though JOHNNY.SMOKES says – I never get featured
-Theres your feature, mostly because we have the same name, Thank you for watching Inform Overload, Hit

I'm guilty of using my phone in the bathtub but it's while it's not plugged in! Would you want a 1k phone dead or destroyed rather than risk your life and have your family pay around 20k for a funeral services!
You can alway charge your phone up after your shower (or not have it in a bathtub at all).

1. Never use a phone in the bathroom. It is not only dangerous for you and the phone, but is is incredibly lowbrow and crude.
2. Never allow liquids without a sealed lid anywhere near your computer.
3. Never stick your damn tongue in a wall outlet.
4. Have GFI outlet installed. At least one for each separate circuit in your home or apartment.
5. If you can’t easily explain how electricity works, you don’t know enough to take chances. You are not an expert just because you think you are.
6. Electrical damage and injuries happen instantaneously. If damage or injury did not occur, you were lucky. You may not be next time. You are not faster than electricity under any circumstance, ever.
7. House current in the USA is around 110-120volts. Lightning is measured in the millions. Lightning can strike from 10, 20, even 30 miles away. Hearing thunder means the lightning already happened. Lightning does hit the same place twice.

You can drop a charging phone in a bath and it won’t kill you, it will only kill you if the two prongs that plug into the wall are submerged. Any current that is the the actual charging cable won’t hurt you because it’s only 5 volts. In this situation she probably had a extension cord plugged into the charger which carries a lethal amount of current. So word of advice, you can charge your phone just make sure the prongs on the charging Brick don’t get submerged.

This can only kill if yo have a faulty cheap Chinese charger that passed mains to the phone or if you get the actual charger in the tub. I would never use a phone that is charging while messing with water.

Also a GFCI costs under $20 and can save your life. You should use one in the bathroom unless there is one already installed:
