Cellphone kills Nigerian man while plugged into wall charger

cellphone wall charger 2

Okay honestly, we gotta call "urban legend" on this one. Supposedly, a man in Nigeria was electrocuted and killed when he answered his cellphone while it was charging: "electricity flowed into the cell phone unrestrained and the young man was thrown to the ground with a heavy thud." He was then apparently dead upon arrival at the nearest hospital. Total bunk?
