Unfortunately for 25-year-old Dhanji Damor of Gujarat, India, he was electrocuted while charging and using his Chinese supplied phone. Commonly known as shanzai phones, which are basically cheap knock-offs of some popular smartphones, Damor was taken to the hospital after the whole incident occurred. Sadly, doctors declared him dead due to the electrocution he experienced while attempting to place a phone call.
Naturally, there might be other factors that might have contributed to his death, but it goes to show that these knock-off phones can seriously prove to be deadly – namely due to the fact there is probably very little in regards to safety with them. So the next time you’re considering on picking up a knock-off of some sort, just be wary about the possibilities since they’re not put through the normal set of safety tests and procedures that are normally carried out by brand name manufacturers.
