Girl electrocuted and dies tweeting in the tub

Anonymous Coward writes | about 5 years ago

Idle 3

Jeff Shantz writes "A 17 year old Romanian girl is dead after being electrocuted while tweeting in the bath tub. Apparently, she plugged in her laptop after her battery started to die, and it is unclear as to whether or not she dropped the laptop in the water, or simply dripped enough water on the device to cause the shock. Needless to say, it is probably good advice not to tweet in the tub."

I assume your post is intended to be her last tweet. Really poor taste, but I couldn't help cracking up. :)
