A 9-year-old girl in the United Kingdom suffered third-degree burns on her leg after the glittery case she used to protect her iPhone reportedly cracked and leaked onto her skin.
Karly Retter posted a photo of the cell phone case and her daughter Olivia’s leg on Facebook to serve as a warning to others.
“Doctors have said it is a severe chemical burn and she will be scarred for life,” Retter told The Telegraph. “I can’t believe it, she will have a scare in the shape of a phone on her leg.”
Retter told the news outlet that her daughter fell asleep with her phone next to her and woke up with a painful red burn.
According to a follow-up Facebook post from Retter, the phone case has been removed from stores.
