An eighth grade student from Kennebunk, Maine was injured last week when her iPhone 5C exploded in her back pocket. She was treated at the hospital for minor burns.
The 13-year-old girl sat down in class with her iPhone 5C in her back pocket. As she took her seat, she heard a pop and smoke began to shoot from her pants. Thinking she was on fire, the girl dropped to the floor with classmates assisting with a fire blanket and extinguisher. Her classmates helped her take off the pants, revealing the melting iPhone in her pocket. She was treated for minor burns as a result of the unusual incident.
This is not the first time an iPhone has exploded. Last August, a woman in China was injured when her phone exploded after a 40-minute phone conversation. She felt the phone hot against her cheek, tried to hang up and felt the glass shatter towards her face, scratching her cornea. Apple has not released a statement on the most recent explosion yet, although a statement can be expected in the near future.
