I really hope that poor little girl is okay! Its amazing how quick such horrible, unthinkable things can happen!

It’s horrible what happened to that little girl.
My husband doesn’t believe that a USB cable is to blame. Maybe it’s the former Police Detective, now a Fire Lieutenant in him. I hope he is wrong, and that there is not more to this story. Either way I hope she pulls through!

My husband is a computer technician, and he believes that the laptop would be at fault here. The only way a USB cable can put out that amount of voltage is if the thing it is attached to allows extra voltage to pass through it. In other words, a defective computer that allows too much voltage to go into the USB cable would have to cause this. The cable isn’t the issue, but the computer.
