Police Release Final Text Message of Girl Who Died in Bathtub

The last photo taken by a young girl who died after electrocuting herself has been shared online.

Authorities say Madison, a Lubbock resident, was visiting at her father's house in Lovington when she died.

Her family agreed to release the chilling photo in a bid to raise awareness of the dangers of using electronic devices near water so that others don't make the same mistake.

The Lovington Police Department has completed the investigation of the accidental electrocution of a 14-year-old female which occurred in the city of Lovington on Sunday, July 9, 2017. There were plans for her to attend high school in Houston. Additional investigation was conducted by the Criminal Investigations Division of the Lovington Police Department and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission. Although Madison's cell phone was never actually in the water, officials say she touched a frayed part of the extension cord that had water in it, which was enough to cause electrocution.
