Football fan is 'electrocuted by his phone' as he watched a match on his handset in bed with the charger plugged in

*Somchai Singkhorn, 40, was watching football on his handset in bed on Tuesday
*Police in Samut Prakan, Thailand suspect that Somchai was then electrocuted
*Laotian roommate Saeng thought his friend was just ill when he first found him
*Police said Somchai may have died differently after finding beer in his room

A chef who liked to stay up late watching football on his phone is believed to have died after being electrocuted by the handset.

Somchai Singkhorn, 40, was last seen on Tuesday night laying on his mattress with a can of beer, watching TV on his phone with his headphones plugged in.

Police Colonel Warawach Thammasarot said: 'The deceased was laid on the mattress with his phone and earphone[s] on him but we also found beer and fizzy drinks near him.

'From the initial checks, we suspected that he was electrocuted but we need to check everything and wait for his postmortem examination results before we confirm the exact cause of death.'

I stopped using earphones while my phone is connected to a working charger when a friend told me a high voltage electric current overcharged his phone, causing an explosion. We take many things for granted, even though we're aware of the consequences.
That dude probably knew that he was taking a risk, but he couldn't resist because his desires got the best of him. What a way to die!

brother lienus

but during spiked and thunderstorms a phone charger can pass more than 10,000 volts which can kill anybody using the phone at the moment if the phone is plugged to mains

5 volts can't practically harm a human severely talk more of electrocution. Don't be ignorant, Google is at your disposal.

100% not possible. The phone is even still ON, meaning that over 100V passed through the charger, didn't destroy the capacitor, regulators etc and then moved over the tiny cable to the phone, and somehow the phone survived but the guy didn't; make they go look for wetin kill the guy jor undecided

Either he was using a dangerously faulty charger or there was a sudden spike in the electric current.

I greatly suspect he wasn't watching football, he was streaming porn hub and got too excited masturbating and his poor heart couldn't take it any more
Or his drinks should be checked
