An Alabama man almost died last month after being shocked by 110 volts of electricity while sleeping with his iPhone charging in his bed. The Washington Post reports that 32-year-old Wiley Day's dog-chain necklace acted as a conductor for electricity when it hit his charger and extension cord. When he was jolted awake, Day fell to the floor and felt his eyesight fading as his body went numb--which he calls "the eeriest, darkest, most demonic thing you could ever experience."
Fortunately, Day was eventually able to trip off his necklace and drive himself to the hospital, where he was treated for second- and third-degree burns. He now charges his iPhone in his kitchen and is warning others not to charge their electronic devices in their beds. "It's not worth it," he declares. "I wouldn't wish what happe;ned to me on my worst enemy." Meanwhile, Benjamin Fail, a physician from Huntsville, Ala., tells WAAY TV, "He is lucky to be alive. Electrocution kills."
