Teenager Electrocuted While Using Mobile In Bath

Lovington Police Department

Police have released the last photo a teen sent before she was electrocuted while taking a bath, KCBD reports.

Coe plugged her cell phone charger into a frayed extension cord and later apparently touched the cord while sitting in the tub.

Police released the last text Coe sent, presumably to a friend, showing a picture of her cell phone's charger plugged into an extension cord outside the bathtub.

'When you use and (sic) extension cord so you can plug in your phone while you're in the bath, ' the text read.

Her family agreed to release the chilling photo in a bid to raise awareness of the dangers of using electronic devices near water so that others don't make the same mistake.

Relatives believe the accident was caused either when the young girl plugged in her phone or as she grabbed the handset while it was being charged.


"She had her phone plugged into the extension cord and it was by the bathtub and I did it, she did it, we all had sat there in the bathtub with our phones plugged in and played our games", explained her stepmother to KRQE.

The teenager's grandmother Donna O'Guinn said that the girl was her "shining star" and Madison was wiser than her age. The teen, a resident of Lubbock Texas, recently graduated from eight grade to ninth at Terra Vista Middle School. The teen was the number one chair with her tuba in her school band and was also a basketball player. Before this incident took place, she was expected to start her high school in Houston, as her family was shifting. Electricity and water do not mix. Forensic evidence indicated that she came in contact with this area of the frayed extension cord while she was still in the bathtub which contained water at the time, resulting in her electrocution.

"She was just sweet to everybody and everybody loved". She just loved life.

"This is such a tragedy that doesn't need to happen to anyone else".

A GoFundMe page has been set up for anyone who would like to help the family with medical and funeral expenses.
