Never answer a cell phone while it is being charged
A cell phone safety tip: Never, ever answer a cell phone while it is being charged.
Specially if you live in Gahna - where I'm hoping this deathly accident occured because safety norms are different than where I live. ModernGhana.com reports.
"A few days ago, a person was recharging his cell phone at home. Just at that time a call Came in and he answered it with the 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 ground with a heavy thud.
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."
