A young man was electrocuted and his girlfriend suffered a shock after connecting a “poorly insulated” phone charger in Russia.

Kirill Matveev, presumably 20 years old, was in bed with his girlfriend Mira Polyshina, 20, next to him when he was electrocuted on Monday evening.

Despite Mrs. Polyshina’s efforts to help him breathe and summon an ambulance to the Yoshkar-Ola town, paramedics were unable to save Lada’s car mechanic.

Kirill Matveev, presumably 20 years old, was in bed with his girlfriend Mira Polyshina, 20, next to him when he was electrocuted on Monday evening.

The police suspect that the electrical cable of a charger is not well insulated and an investigation is ongoing.

Mrs. Polyshina placed an emotional message with the text: “Forgive me that I cannot save you”

The research committee in Mari El Republic in Russia said the likely cause was “due to wiring insulation issues” on the charger.

“He put the smartphone on and got a shock, just like his girlfriend,” a spokesman said.

“The young man died on the spot.”

A video posted by his girlfriend shows the couple together, and another was a tribute from his friends to the popular Matveev.

Mrs. Polyshina also posted an emotional message with the text: “Forgive me that I could not save you.”

“I tried, I did everything to make you breathe, but even the ambulance crew couldn’t. I love you, as you well know … Ohh, how painful it was to look at you, WHEN I couldn’t save you.
