Polisi di distrik Hoan Kiem di ibukota Vietnam, Hanoi, mengatakan bahwa mereka menemukan kabel charger putih yang terbakar di tempat tidurnya dan diyakini bahwa tetes airmata pada selubung kabel yang terbuka sehingga mengakibatkan si gadis tersengat listrik.

Pelajar putri bernama Le Thi Xoan, berusia 14, ditemukan tidak sadarkan diri oleh orang tuanya dan bergegas ke rumah sakit setempat; Namun, dokter tidak dapat menolongnya dan dinyatakan meninggal dunia.

Petugas medis juga menegaskan bahwa sengatan listrik yang menyebabkan kematian.

Menurut hasil penyidikan, polisi meyakini gadis itu memasang perangkat Apple-nya untuk mengisi dengan meletakkan iPhone 6 di tempat tidurnya seperti yang dia lakukan setiap malam.

Mereka mengatakan tragedi kematian itu bermula saat sang gadis tidur dan kemudian berguling ke kabel charger iPhone, kemudian diduga kabel yang selubungnya terbuka dan mengakibatkan dia kesetrum.

Kabel charger sedang diperiksa tapi pihak berwenang mengatakan bahwa mereka belum menentukan apakah hal itu akibat kabel charger asli (orisinal) atau produk KW.

Dalam foto yang menunjukkan kabel yang terbakar, kabeltampaknya lebih pendek dari kabel pengisi daya asli dari Apple berukuran 0,5 meter.

A TEENAGE girl tragically died after being electrocuted in her sleep by her iPhone 6's faulty charging cable.

Police in the Hoan Kiem district of Vietnamese capital Hanoi said they found the burnt white cable on her bed and believe a slight tear in the rubber casing may have revealed the live wires inside.

The schoolgirl named as Le Thi Xoan, aged 14, was found unconscious by her parents and rushed to a local hospital; however, doctors were unable to revive her and pronounced her dead.

Medics also confirmed electrocution as the cause of death.

According to investigators, the police believe the girl had plugged her Apple device in to charge and laid the iPhone 6 on her bed like she did every night.

They said the tragedy likely struck as she slept and rolled onto the iPhone's charging cable, which had tears in it and which electrocuted her with the current.

The charging cable is being inspected but the authorities said they are yet to determine whether it was the original Apple wire or a third-party device.

In a picture showing the burnt cable, it appears to be shorter than Apple's original 0.5-metre (20-inch) charging cable.

See-through tape had also been wrapped around the front of the cable, suggesting that the victim may have been aware of the wear and tear but decided to continue using it regardless.

The Sun Online has approached Apple for comment.
