Sure, we've all heard about mobile phones that explode, but this time the exploding phone actually killed someone. Are mobile phones becoming less safe?Here is a look at the horrible tragedy:
In the first such case in Korea, a 33-year-old man was found dead on Wednesday, presumably killed by a cell phone battery explosion, police said. The cell phone was the product of LG Electronics.
The explosion was pretty gruesome:
"He was injured in the left side of his chest. His ribs and spine were broken. The explosion punctured his heart and lungs, leading to his death," Kim said.
Sur's family and coworkers said he had no chronic diseases.
The death marks the first time that a person has been killed by a cell phone battery explosion in South Korea. In June, Chinese media reported that a person was killed by a mobile phone explosion in China.
