Tragic accident, local police report

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

A seven-year-old British boy has been killed in Thailand after being electrocuted during an attempt to plug the mains-charger for his Nintendo Game Boy into a hotel power socket.

The incident took place on Saturday, but details have only now been released following an investigation carried out by local police. The victim was named as Connor O'Keefe, 7.

Officers said the boy's death was an accident caused because Connor was still wet after a dip in the pool of the hotel at which he and his parents were staying. Police believe he either plugged in the power adaptor or attempted to remove it. Either way, water from his body made contact with the electricity supply with fatal consequences.

Police said the boys hotel, the Sunset Beach Hotel in Patong Beach, Phuket, was not to blame for the accident. ®
