    This is why I ask!!!!!

    Subject: Fw: Warning from Miami University Hospital

    This is pretty scary; I have answered my cell phone when it was plugged in charging. I checked this out at Snopes. It actually did happen but little is known about circumstances surrounding this case, like the manufacturer of the phone, the batteries exploding, a surge of power, a storm, etc. But at any rate, it is better to be safe than sorry, and just unplug the phone. Check out Snopes website as there is some interesting information about safety and use of cell phones that I think everyone should be aware of.



    Subject
    : University of Miami Hospital - Serious Warning


    A few days ago, a person was recharging his mobile phone at home.

    Just at that time a call came in and he answered it with the charging
    Instrument still connected to the outlet.




    After a few seconds electricity flowed into the cell phone unrestrained
    and the young man was thrown to the floor with a heavy thud. As you can see,

    the phone actually exploded.

    His parents rushed to the room only to find him unconscious, with a weak

    heartbeat and burnt fingers.


    He was rushed to the nearby hospital, but was pronounced dead on arrival.



    Cell phones are a very useful modern invention.





    However, we must be aware that it can also be an instrument of death.



    Never use the cell phone while it is hooked to the electrical outlet! If you are charging the cell phone and a call comes in, unplug it from the charger and outlet.


    FORWARD THIS TO THE PEOPLE THAT MATTER IN YOUR LIFE!!!!

    Whether or not they have a cell phone. They can also inform others who do......
