Texas Man Dies After Vape Pen Explodes

Texas Man Dies After Vape Pen Explodes

The Tarrant County Medical Examiner's Office said the exploding device severed his left internal carotid artery.

The fatal incident unfolded moments after William Brown, who'd borrowed his grandmother's auto to run some errands, stepped out of a Smoke & Vape DZ store at a nearby shopping mall on January 27 with his very first electronic cigarette.

"That went across his lip, apparently somehow, and cut his lip", Alice Brown, who said she raised her grandson, told CBS.

'It just all seems so unreal. That three-piece thing went into his throat and stayed there, ' Alice said. Covered in blood, her grandson searched for help and was eventually taken to a hospital, where he died two days later.

The official cause of death was "penetrating trauma from exploding vaporizer pen".

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

US Fire Administration statistics from 2017 show that 133 acute injuries from e-cigarettes, vaporizers and other similar devices were reported between 2009 and 2016. The manager told KTVT-TV that Brown didn't buy anything but asked for help using a mechanical mod vape pen.
