'Yes, they die from this': the son of a famous blogger died because of a smartphone that fell into the bathtub
In the family of the famous art blogger Anastasia Sosnovskaya, a tragedy occurred. Her 12-year-old son died while swimming in the bathtub because of an iPhone that fell there, writes Life.ru.
The author of a popular blog about art, Anastasia, said that they tried to revive her son for 40 minutes, but nothing helped. The cause of death became known only almost two weeks after the tragedy.

Please repost. I believe it will spread and save someone's life. Someone will think, someone will forbid, someone will just know that it is fucking really life-threatening.
