An 11-year-old boy was electrocuted while using a charging mobile phone and died later at the hospital in the Central Highlands province of Lam Dong on Sunday.

L.T.T., a fifth grader from Ward 1, Bao Loc City, Lam Dong Province, was using his phone around 12:00 pm on Sunday when the battery died, so he plugged it in and continued to use the device before being electrocuted.

After discovering the incident, T.'s family immediately cut the power and administered first aid to the victim before rushing him to Lam Dong General Hospital 2 for emergency treatment.

However, the victim passed away at the hospital later.

T. was born to a poverty-stricken family.

His family currently resides in a boarding home.

Authorities in Bao Loc City launched an investigation to determine the incident's cause and supported the victim's family with burial expenses.
