We have become so dependent on gadgets.
It's impossible to imagine a single day without using any sorts of technology. You would never have thought about the horrible consequences that can happen to you from the misuse of these gadgets. They can hurt you in many ways.
Read the story of a girl who had never expected such injury from usual cellphone use.
As she reached the age to be responsible enough for possessing a phone, she was gifted a new mobile phone on Christmas.
Like anyone else, even she was curious and started exploring her phone.
She screamed and came running downstairs.
Gabbie's cellphone had caused second degree burns on her neck.
Jackie was shocked that the thing that we use everyday could be this dangerous.
She added, "She was in so much pain she was screaming hysterically."
It seems that she was using the phone when it was connected to a wall charger.
An electric current was transmitted to her neck and she got burnt in that region.
Though this occurrence is rare but, many cases have been reported and are still being reported per year.
Better use the charger that has been given to you by the manufacturer along with the phone.
