Electrocuted Teen Found With Headphones ‘Melted In Her Ears’

A 17-year-old Brazilian student has been electrocuted while using her charging mobile phone. Reportedly, the headphones she was wearing ‘melted in her ears’.

Luiza Pinheiro was rushed to hospital after a relative found her body at about 5pm on Sunday on the floor of her Riacho Frio home, but tragically, doctors were unable to save her.

While the cause of the electrocution is yet to be established, she was found unconscious next to her phone, which was plugged into a charger. The unit was said to have been destroyed by a “huge electric charge”.

“The girl’s grandmother told the doctor that they found her granddaughter unconscious, lying on the floor and with headphones in her ears,” a hospital spokesman told local media. “They said they believe that the young woman had an electric shock because the cell phone was charging and the phone was melted.”

He also said that while it wasn’t raining at the time of the incident, there was a lightning storm.

“It is stated in the medical record that the girl was admitted to the hospital one hour after the electric shock,” he said. “The relatives said that the girl had received a shock, but the causes of death will still be confirmed.”
