Phone Explodes, Burns Owner Alive
While phones catching fire or even exploding are more or less common these days, they don’t typically cause any or serious harm to their owners.
But a recent tragedy that took place in India proves that such incidents can very well be fatal, as the owner of a phone was burned alive after the device exploded in the middle of the night.
According to local media reports, a 60-year-old man living in Netavalgarh Pachhli village in Chittorgarh went to sleep with his Jio phone in the pocket when the device caught fire and set his clothes into flames.
His wife called the ambulance and the man was rushed to the hospital, but due to severe burns, he was declared dead a few minutes later.
