She tried to remove a broken adaptor from a socket. She's nearly eight, you just don't expect it do you. Glad to say she's fine, but bloody he'll I am shaken.

Nobody willing to express some sympathy?

I'm glad your DD is ok, but why was there a broken adaptor in a plug socket for her to try and take it out?

To be precise we thought it was an intact an intact uk to Europe adaptor which she used to charge her ds. She tried to pull it out and the front bit came off. She then stuck her hand in to get the rest off. I had no idea there was anything wrong with it.

Well that makes a little more sense. Can I assume it was a cheap one bought from a market? They are well known to be dangerous copies. I'm sorry you're DD was caught out though. Was she hurt?

No just very very shaken. I can't remember where we bought it from tbh.

She's very lucky, but I think you need to teach her a bit more about electrical safety and what not to do.

I think she learnt a massive lesson there.

I was very worried about DD when she was learning to dry her own hair, I worried about dry hands and dripping for ages.
She lived!
