    For goodness sake, let the call go to voicemail!

    Was she taking a bath when it happened?

    Doesn't sound like it, from the article.

    I've used my HTC phone while it's plugged in. It uses a mini USB connector - I've always assumed those are low voltage.

    I guess, no one would expect to get "electrocuted" while taking that call. It's a bit of a surprise to here this from Apple. Very sad about the lady who got killed.

    That's indeed a possibility, but I wouldn't expect to get killed by taking the call, only because the phone was charging. I wonder how this case plays out, with hopefully more insights available into this case soon. It's a very sad case indeed.
