Pic shows Richard Bull.. The family of a man electrocuted in the bath by his iPhone charger have warned of the startling dangers they carry... Richard Bull 32 died at his Ealing home on December 11 last year after he dropped his iPhone into the bath

He suffered severe burns on his chest, arm and hand when the charger touched the water and died on 11 December, the newspaper said.

An English coroner will warn Apple that iPhone chargers can be potentially deadly after a man was electrocuted while charging his phone in the bath.

Richard Bull, 32, died in December a year ago at his home in London.

Richard Bull was electrocuted after his charging phone came into contact with his bath water.

Rock & roll legend Chuck Berry dies at 90
A meeting in Chicago with famed blues musician Muddy Waters led to the release of Maybellene , national fame and a string of hits. His musical style helped give birth to the age of the American teenager, all hormones and energy and optimism.

"These seem like innocuous devices, but they can be as unsafe as a hairdryer in a bathroom".

His injuries were so bad, his wife Tanya at first thought he had been attacked.

Coroner Dr Sean Cummings ruled Bull's death was an accident, but issued a warning to users - and said he would also contact iPhone manufacturer Apple with his concerns. However, the coroner, a public official who investigates suspicious, sudden or violent deaths, said he was extremely concerned that people didn't realize that phones were as unsafe near water as, say, hairdryers. "They should attach warnings", he told the inquest, calling the death "accidental".

As the Daily Mail reports, when police arrived at the scene they found an extension cord leading into the bathroom from the hallway. "You don't think there is enough electricity but there is".
