A Woman Did Something With Her Phone That Too Many People Do And She Lived To Regret It…
I know it sounds ridiculous, but I have a wireless headset that I use with my phone whenever I am not directly out of the house. One of my reasons is that those damn cords will end up catching on something while I am working around the house and the next thing I know the ladder to the attic will hit me in the head because of a pair of headphones.
When an Australian woman fell asleep next to her iPhone, she didn’t think twice about it. But when she suddenly felt a burning sensation on her arm, she was jarred out of sleep. She came to and discovered that she had been burned by the popular phone.
The incident occurred at the end of 2016, when Pelaez, 34, first purchased her new iPhone 7. She shared a shocking image of the burn mark on Facebook along with the following words:
“I recently purchased an #Apple #iPhone7 and accidentally fell asleep with my arm on my phone whilst it was charging. I was woken up by sudden pain, pins and needles, numbness and shortness of breath.
“This is a picture of the result of sleeping with my phone whilst charging. PLEASE be careful…
The burns are very serious and will require treatment.
We all knew that the Samsung Galaxy phones were dangerous. But now evidence proves that Apple iPhone are just as dangerous – and they hurt you while you’re sleeping.
Are any phones safe today? Or are they all ticking bombs ready to burn or explode on you?
“I went to get dressed and realized my arm was very red, so I then went to the (doctor) and they advised me I needed to go straight to the hospital,” she said.
When she visited the doctor, Pelaez learned that the “superficial burns” on her upper arm could heal in time.
Since the burning incident, the iPhone was sent to a California technician. Apple has failed to comment on the issue yet.
Meanwhile, Pelaez considers her burns to be serious. She has already scheduled a consultation with a plastic surgeon because she does not want to walk around with burns from an iPhone 7 on her arm for the rest of her life. But it seems like Apple has branded her with its device.
