Texas man dies after e-cigarette explodes in his face

Man 24 dies after exploding e-cigarette causes 'penetrating trauma' in his neck

29 from a stroke caused by a severed artery due to "penetrating trauma from exploding vaporizer pen", according to records from the Tarrant County Medical Examiner.

"It just all seems so unreal", she told the news outlet.

"That three-piece thing went into his throat and stayed there", Ms Brown told KTVT.

Brown is the second person in the USA known to have died due to an exploding e-cigarette.

The explosion happened in the parking lot of a vape shop in Fort Worth on January 27.

In May of last year, a 38-year-old Florida man died from a "projectile wound" caused by an exploding e-cigarette.

The manager of the store told CBS 11 that Brown did not buy anything - instead he wanted help using a "Mechanical Mod" style vape pen.

Alice Brown said she has no intention of suing the hospital or the company that produced the e-cigarette that caused the tragic accident, because it will not bring her grandson back.

His family says doctors knew he had a piece of e-cigarette lodged in his throat, but was never operated on.

He had asthma and had been told that there was a certain vape pen that could help with his symptoms.

Firefighters found him with severe facial injuries and with burns to 80 percent of his body.

E-cigarettes are battery-operated and produce an aerosol by heating a liquid, usually containing nicotine, flavorings and other chemicals, according to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Electronic cigarettes, or vape pens, are battery-operated devices that heat a liquid to generate vapor - which may contain nicotine - that users can inhale. None of those injuries resulted in death, according to the report.

A man has been killed just days shy of his 25th birthday after an e-cigarette exploded in his face. She had to go through it to find the pieces of the destroyed vape pen and said she managed to find the key piece - the battery showing the serial number.

A study by George Mason University, published in the journal Tobacco Control, found that "From 2015 to 2017, there were an estimated 2035 e-cigarette explosion and burn injuries presenting to United States hospital emergency departments".
