Texas teen dies from using cellphone while taking a bath

A Texas teen died on Sunday morning after being electrocuted in a bathtub by her cellphone.

Madison Coe's relatives told KCBD that the 14-year-old girl was either plugging in her phone while in the bathtub or grabbed the phone as it was charging before it fell into the bathtub of her father's New Mexico home.

Coe had recently graduated from the eighth grade at Terra Vista Middle school and was set to attend high school as the family was preparing for their move to Houston.
