After a tiring day from work or activities, the first thing that we want to do is to be refresh. We either drink a cold water or cold drinks, sitting down in front of an electric fan or aircon, or taking a shower. Taking a shower, in particular, is a habit that we do often after a sweaty activity or work. Little did we know, this could actually put our lives in danger. Just like what happen to this 28-year-old who almost lost his life because of this habit.
