In a bid to raise awareness, police have released the final photo ever taken by a 14-year-old girl who died after using her mobile phone in the bathtub last week.
Texas teen Madison Coe was taking a bath at her father’s home when she took a photo of her phone charger and an extension cord lying on top of bath towels.
“When you use and [sic] extension cord so you can plug in your phone while you’re in the bath,” she wrote.
Minutes later, the 8th grader died from what police believe was electrocution.
“There was a burn mark on her hand, the hand that would have grabbed the phone,” her grandmother, Donna O’Guinn, told KCBD. “That was just very obvious that that’s what had happened.”
Now, alongside the Lovington Police Department, Madison's family are hoping to raise awareness about what happened so that other accidents can be prevented.
