I came across this and thought I would pass it on.

Teenager killed

It's made me pause for thought, and I hope it does you too. Although somewhat lacking in details, I suspect he was tinkering inside the psu itself.

Certainly I've never heard of anything like it, but no doubt someone else has.

With the plethora of home-made electrical DIY videos [mostly American] that are uploaded to the internet for 'consumption' by anybody with a decent BB connection ...there's bound to be many more deaths like this one, sadly.

One video I watched recently was on 'How To Repair A Laptop Battery'.

If all of the precautions & warnings were adhered to then it was a relatively safe thing to do ... but I fear many would 'cut-corners' and end up injuring themselves, needlessly.
