A man of Alabama almost lost his life due to an iPhone charger during sleeping. Actually, He was electrocuted by the iPhone charger. This incident shows us the risk of charging our phone when we are in bed.

This 32 year man Wiley day went to the bed on 22 March, keeping his iPhone plug to the charger via an extension cord at the bedside. This man used to wear a dog-tag necklace which was the main cause of this incident. Next morning when he awoke he observed that exposed prongs of charger head which were coming from the extension cord caught the necklace.

The necklace which was of metal behaved as a conductor for the electricity which transferred electricity to Day’s neck. But before he realized what is going around, he had suffered a third-degree burn around his neck. After observing that, he just screamed loudly that a relative rush to his room and find that Wiley got injury and hole in his shirt.

Smartly Wiley removed the chain around his neck to prevent his hand from Burning. Wiley described it the most demonic moment of life and said that nobody should feel that.

He said in his Facebook post that he is thankful to God that he is alive now and thankful to all the guys who calls and text him.
