A woman took her 12 year old girl’s iPhone away. So her daughter decided to try to poison her twice!
You might think your computer and phone are your life. But is an iPhone really worth a life, especially your own or the one of your mother? Of course not. Unfortunately, that’s not exactly what this 12 year old girl thought.
According to official reports, the unnamed child was taken to a juvenile center after she was arrested and charged with two attempts at a first degree murder. The 12 year old, who used to reside in her mother’s house in Boulder, Colorado, US, got so angry at her mother that she tried to poison her. The woman apparently took away her daughter’s iPhone for unknown reasons and the girl wasn’t happy with her mother’s decision. Shortly after the woman had taken away the phone, she had a really bad accident after swallowing an undisclosed amount of bleach. As it turned out, it wasn’t really an accident. The 12 year old had put bleach in her mother’s smoothie as revenge. The mom smelled the bleach, but she thought her daughter had probably just washed the glass earlier, so she drank the smoothie. Fortunately, the bad sickening and side effects were gone in a while. Unfortunately, it didn’t stop the girl from attempting to poison her mother again. A few weeks after the first accident, the 12 year old put bleach in a carafe filled with water. This time the mom called the police on her kid instead of drinking the bleach.
Not so long ago another kid, named Xiao Zheng, attempted a life-threatening stunt just to get an iPhone. The boy, who lives in the Anhui province of China, actually sold his own kidney in order to buy himself an iPhone and an iPad. He received a total of $3,400 and the buyer was never caught.
