Technology giant Apple has launched an investigation into the death of a Chinese woman killed by an electric shock she reportedly suffered from answering a call while her iPhone 5 was charging.
Apple said in a statement that it was saddened to learn of the event and will look further into the matter.
"We are deeply saddened to learn of this tragic incident and offer our condolences to the Ma family. We will fully investigate and cooperate with authorities in this matter," Apple said to Reuters.
"Experts" told Xinhua that mobile phones have an output of only 3-5 volts, not enough to physically harm the human body. It is unclear, then, what caused the accident.
