Exploding mobile phone kills Chinese man

For whom the cell tolls

Beginner's guide to SSL certificates

A Chinese man was reportedly killed at a computer shop last Friday after the cell phone in his chest pocket exploded, severing a major artery in his neck and leading to massive blood loss.

According to local news reports, the man worked as a shop assistant at the store. An employee at a neighboring 7-11 convenience store told local media that she heard a loud bang and saw her colleague lying on the floor in a pool of blood. She said the man had recently swapped his mobile phone battery for a new one.

Police have not released the make or model of the phone. Some reports indicate the fatal explosion occurred at a Lenovo store in Guangzhou, China — although it's not clear whether the shop was an official outlet or whether it just advertised Lenovo products.

Most reports of exploding handset batteries have involved low-quality third-party products, although that's not always the case. ®
