Woman shocked after phone charger explodes
AN ELDERLY Roma woman has escaped injury after her phone charger exploded just five seconds after being plugged into the wall.
The woman bought the charger along with her ZTE phone 18 months ago from a local store.
The charger exploded out of the wall just a few seconds after being plugged in, leaving the pins stuck in the socket while the other parts flew across the room.
Her son, who wanted to remain anonymous, said it was a reminder for people to not talk on the phone while they were charging.
The incident comes just two weeks after a NSW woman was killed after her cheap USB charger electrocuted her.
