Ma Ailun is a 23-year-old women from China’s western Xinjiang who worked as a flight attendant for China Southern Airlines. She was killed in an electric shock when she answered her iPhone while it was charging, the official Xinhua news agency quoted police as saying on Sunday. Apple Inc is currently investigating the accident.

“We are deeply saddened to learn of this tragic incident and offer our condolences to the Ma family. We will fully investigate and cooperate with authorities in this matter,” Apple said in an e-mail. Apple has declined to comment on the details.

Ma’s sister tweeted on Sina’s microblog telling her story and to warn others to be careful, the post went viral.

Apple apologized in April to Chinese consumers and altered iPhone warranty policies.
