Pretty crazy shit. I have two theories as to what may have happened.

Either the wall socket was wired improperly, which caused the charger to fail catastrophically, causing the shield and ground on the charger cable to become hot with 220 volt AC current, which arced forth from the phone due to the lack of isolation, or the inverter circuit responsible for powering the fluorescent tube in the LCD screen failed catastrophically, zapping the user with a few hundred high current volts right to her head.

I heard the iPhone 6 stabs you as soon as you open the box.

That's only if its sensor detects an Android device within Bluetooth range. Apple won't stand for those kinds of shenanigans.

I was going to suggest that they make a movie about it called "The Call", but apparently it's been done... bummer.

You should be worried. There are only 30+M iPhone5s being used on a daily basis making millions and millions of calls, some of those on a charger plugged into the wall.

Chances are good you're next ;). I suggest buying a lottery ticket and buying temporary life insurance on your next flight.

I'm sorry, but that's freakin' funnier than sheet! Don't get the folks that camp out for "products"! No product is THAT good, and its electronic/technology related if you wait a bit it probably comes down in price.
