The parents found their 14-year-old girl unconscious and take her to the local hospital where doctors declared girl dead. According to the investigation officials, the might be laying her iPhone on the bed and put it for charging every night. The cable of the charger is being inspected by the officials but authorities are yet to decide whether it was the original cable of iPhone or a third-party device.
