Apple: Teen Worker Death Not From Working Conditions

Apple's doctors say that the 15 year old worker that died in one of its factories was not due to working conditions. The company sent its own doctors from the U.S. to investigate and found that it was a case of the flu. Apple also states that the teen lied to gain employment.

Apple last month sent medical experts to the Pegatron facility in Shanghai to determine whether the worker's death had anything to do with the working conditions at the factory where iPhones and iPad Minis are built. The pneumonia, the medical experts determined, did not relate to work in the factory or the production of Apple products.
