Girl Wakes Up Forever Changed by Glittery Object

Karly Retter's 9-year-old daughter, Olivia, woke up in searing pain one evening. Karly had no idea why until she found something on Olivia's bed that would leave her marked for life.

The furthest thing from Karly's mind was her child receiving 2nd to 3rd-degree burns from the comfort of her bed. Karly had not realized an unknown danger waiting for Olivia under the covers.

Olivia had her own iPhone5 that was supposed to be put away at night. Instead, Olivia kept playing with it until she fell asleep on it. Yet, it wasn't the phone that was the issue, it was the glittery case.

The mother, from the United Kingdom, explained that Olivia's glittery phone cover cracked open after Olivia fell asleep on it. Retter said that the case was full of acid and caused chemical burns on Olivia's upper thigh.

Retter shared “Doctors have said it is a severe chemical burn and she will be scarred for life. I can’t believe it – she will have a scar in the shape of a phone on her leg. Olivia fell asleep with her phone in the bed next to her on January 2, and woke up the following morning with the painful red burn on her right thigh.”

Retter's warning went viral, and the unicorn phone case style has since been removed from store shelves. Yet, there are probably others like it still available for purchase. Just because something is sold in public, does not mean it is necessarily safe. It's always best to read product reviews before purchasing and sticking to trusted brands.
