She Came Downstairs Screaming Her Neck Hurt - You Won't Believe Why

Thirteen-year-old Gabbie Fedro was talking on her smartphone, and it was connected to the charger at the same time. Gabbie was also wearing a metal choker-style necklace that afternoon.

Then a freak accident occurred. Somehow the electrical current in the phone charger went directly through her phone, and through the jack of the charger and jumped into her metal necklace.

When the electricity pulsed through and heated the metal around her neck, Gabbie screamed as the hot metal necklace began to burn her flesh.

After this scary incident, Gabbie’s mom, Jackie Fedro, is making an effort to warn others regarding the potential dangers of a cell phone charger.

Fedro explained: “She came running downstairs after it, grabbing her neck,” Fedro commented. “She was in so much pain she was screaming hysterically.”

Gabbie tried to tell her mom what happened and broke down crying. The horrible experience left scars on her skin, and she also has psychological scars.

“It’s the worst feeling in the world as a mother to watch your child scream in pain and have no idea how to help her,” Fedro went on. “It took her a good five minutes before she was even able to tell us what had happened.”

Ironically, Gabbie had just gotten the phone – an LG d500 model – a few months before at Christmas to help keep her safe.

“One of the reasons we finally gave in and bought her a cell phone is so we can keep in touch with her more with her crazy practice schedule,” Jackie pointed out.

According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, most cellphone burning incidents are related to one of the lithium batteries overheating inside the phone.

The warning from the commission also highlights that cheap “knock off” and third party chargers and batteries increase the chances for an accident.

Fedro notes that her daughter’s phone and accessories were all brand new original equipment. The good news is the carrier that supplied the phone (T-Mobile) agreed to replace the phone and even offered to cover Gabbie’s medical bills.
