Man almost dies sleeping next to mobile phone

Man almost dies sleeping next to mobile phone

On March 22, Wiley Day, 32, of Alabama, United States , connected the cell phone to charge the battery in a fake extension plug, right next to his bed. This was his habit every night, when he used to follow his social networks before bed.

Asleep, his metal necklace slipped from his neck, leaning against the pin of the charger that is placed inside the socket and, in this case, I was a bit exposed. So he received an electric shock that knocked him to the ground. The necklace acted like a thread.

He felt his body numb and a very strong pressure hit his neck as he screamed for help. Wiley was able to pull the collar off her neck and her family members were able to help him.

Even the sheet was scorched and parts of Wiley's skin were torn off. He was quickly taken to the University of Alabama's Birmingham Intensive Treatment for Burn Trauma with second- and third-degree burns that hit his neck, chest and hands. According to the site Buzzfeed, doctors said that Day was lucky to be alive, as an electric shock with a voltage of 100 volts is enough to kill a person and it is estimated that the man has received a voltage of about 110 volts.

The American Burn Association, specializing in burn cases, claims that defects in electrical extensions are the number one cause of about 4,700 residential fires per year in the US. Of these, 50 result in deaths and 280 in serious injuries.

Scientists trace the path of the dental caries bacterium through time

Streptococcus mutans, the bacterium associated with tooth decay, evolved along with its human host, in an obvious bond that can be attributed to a single common ancestor who lived in Africa between "As humans migrated around the world and evolved into the different races and ethnicities we know today, this bacterium has evolved with them into one.
