Default Another one killed by a phone?

This time, a 14 years girl. How much more?

Tons of red flags ... and not because it supposedly happened in a former Soviet Republic.

1) published in The Sun.
That alone disqualifies almost any piece of News.

2) they had to bring this from .... Kazakhstan ???
Shades of Borat and about as accurate.

3) fourteen year old?

Click the image to open in full size.

make it 24 (or 34) and it will fit better.

Not saying this fish is old but it definitely stinks.

Of course it fits like a glove the "Smartphones give you cancer" crowd ideas, so no surprise it´s copypasted to death without verification.
Just sayin´

I saw first in Infobae.com, and make reference to The Mirror: Murio una adolescente al explotar su celular mientras dormia - Infobae

Referencing to cancer, I am not sure if cells are responsible for cancer, but as ham radio I know that RF near the brain can't be safe to us. I never had a cell nor a HT or handy.

Errr ... they cure cancer with radiation. Ionizing radiation, at that.

Yes, but doing their very best to make certain that as little of the radiation as possible is absorbed in healthy tissue and as much as possible in the cancer.

In any case, lithium batteries with malfunctioning chargers and malfunctioning or nonexistent protection circuits are definitely dangerous. An acquaintance of mine had to leave his house for a while after an electric bike in a neighbouring bicycle shop caught fire due to a malfunctioning charger.

Everything in life has a risk, no matter how small.
When you think of the billions of mobile phones around and other things that run off batteries its amazing there aren't more explosions.

My uncle was working to develop some test equipment for a fighter jet many years ago, and one of the crew had a battery from the workbench explode and embed itself in his leg!
