The report comes from Chinese language TV station CCTV. South China Morning Post has an English coverage of the report. It is not quite clear if CCTV has real evidence or only bases the report on opinions by an expert. The expert raises two possibilities why the woman got electrocuted. Either it was a low-quality knock-off charger or she used a charger made for Hong Kong, Taiwan and Japan that which are only made for 110V. Mainland China is using a 220V power system.
The CCTV report also says that the woman actually used an iPhone 4 and not an iPhone 5. The police and Apple investigations are still underway and there is no official report yet.

About the Geek Mind
The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
