Internet Cafe

An 18-year-old teenager met with an untimely death at an Internet cafe in Wuhan, China, when he unplugged his mobile phone from a computer he was charging it on.

According to the teenager's brother, Xiong Feng, the deceased Xiong Xuan was a factory worker at a garment factory and a regular at the local Internet cafe.

The incident took place on Apr. 15, after Xiong had finished his shift at work. The elder Xiong, who was present at the scene, told reporters that his brother was seated at his usual seat in the cafe and after he was done using the computer, reached to unplug the charging cable when the freak accident happened.

Xiong said: "He let out a shout when he pulled on the cable and then his foot made contact with the steel legs of the table."

Xiong also recalled how his brother started foaming at the mouth and had fainted, but no one at the Internet cafe came to his aid.

"He was obviously hurt, but none of the staff helped," he told local reporters.

In a frantic state, Xiong called their uncle who also worked at the same factory, who immediately drove over to take the unconscious Xiong to the nearby Panlongcheng People's Hospital.

After 20 minutes, Xiong was pronounced dead by the doctors. The official cause of death was electrical injury.

The license of the Internet cafe has been suspended, while investigations on the accident are underway, reported Hubei's Chutian News.

Electrocution while charging mobile phone accidents are not unheard of. Just last week, a Malaysian woman died from being electrocuted while talking on her mobile phone while it was plugged in. A Chinese woman was also killed in 2013 when she answered a call on her mobile phone while it was charging.
