Texas man killed after e-cigarette explodes

E-cigarette Explosion Texas Man Died After Vape Pen Burst on His Face Watch Video

The explosion happened two days earlier, in the parking lot of Smoke and Vape DZ, a smoking and vaping supplies store.

A shop representative told KTVT that Brown entered and asked for help using a "Mechanical Mod" style vape pen, a brand the store said it refuses to sell as it is known to have technical issues.

He attempted to use the pen in the auto when the battery exploded with enough force to melt plastic in the vehicle and fling metal debris into Mr Brown's face.

"He should have made it if they had done the surgery", Alice Brown told KTVT.

The agency reported that e-cigarettes present a unique hazard because of the presence of a lithium-ion battery in a device used so close to the face. He was then taken to John Peter Smith Hospital, where he was sadly declared dead two days later.

"He should have had a long life ahead of him", his grandmother added.

A man here died after an e-cigarette he was using exploded in his face.

This is believed to be only the second time someone has died in the USA from an exploding vape pen.

St. Pete Fire Rescue Deputy Marshal Steven Lawrence told Fox, "We do have cases where the vape pens have exploded and they have caused fires". None of those injuries resulted in death, according to the report. Additionally, the shape of e-cigarettes makes them more likely to act like "flaming rockets" if a battery fails, the USFA said.

A man was hospitalized after a vape pen exploded, leaving him with a shattered jaw on November 15, 2018.

"It's still shocking to me talking about it. He has several years to reconstruct his mouth".

Mrs Brown said: "That's the important part".

Florida man Tallmadge D'Elia died at his home when his device exploded and projected fragments into his skull last May.

Mohamad Zayid Abdihdy, 24, was examining televisions at the HDTV Outlet store in Anaheim, when he felt something odd in his front trousers pocket.

Disaster struck after after Brown returned to the vehicle and "popped" the device open, according to Alice Brown, his grandmother.

Agdihdy yanked the flaming device out of his pocket, dropped it to the floor, and sprinted for the store's restroom to attend to his burns.
