We’ve all seen the horror stories of gadgets exploding, catching fire or otherwise ruining someone’s day. According to a report from China, one Chinese woman has suffered an eye injury as the result of her iPhone exploding and shooting some shrapnel in her eye.
The woman felt her phone get warm after talking on it for about 40 minutes, but when she tried to end the call by tapping on the screen, the device exploded and sent debris into her eye. She could not open her eyes and her colleagues had to rush her to a hospital where the doctor found her eye red and inflamed, with a scratch mark where the debris had hit it.
It wasn’t too serious thankfully, and Apple representatives have stated that they are investigating. It sucks to be the victim of one of these tragedies.
