A 28-year-old man in Thailand was electrocuted while using his smartphone that was plugged into a charger at his home. According to media reports, the man, identified as Kittisak Moonkitti was in his bedroom in Chonburi in western Thailand when his mother Rinnaporn Moonkitti, 57, called for him to assist in a household chore, but he failed to answer.
