A woman was killed while using her iPhone last week and now Apple is investigating the incident.
ABC News, citing a report from a Chinese news outlet, says 23-year-old Ma Ailun was electrocuted when she picked up the iPhone 5 to answer a call while the battery was charging.
Apple's Beijing-based spokesperson told ABC News the company was "deeply saddened" and will fully cooperate in the matter.

Professional engineer Donald Johnson said many factors could have been involved and you shouldn't be worried, as low-voltage items like phone chargers don't usually pose a risk.
China is Apple's second largest market following the U.S.
