By now we have all heard the horror stories about phones blowing up or catching on fire. Sometimes, no one is hurt, other times people are not so lucky. What happens when a phone catches on fire on a plane? Well, one set of crew and passengers recently found out.
This kind of situation is bad either way, but you want to be on the ground if it happens, not in the air. A recent flight that was preparing to embark on a trip from Tel-Aviv, Israel to Prague, Czech Republic. Everything seemed fine. The roughly 150 passengers were boarding and getting settled in when a girl opened her purse and noticed a problem with her iPhone.
Witnesses say that Yardin Levi’s iPhone 5 was in flames and started spewing smoke throughout the cabin. Obviously this scared many of the passengers. Some could see it burst into flames while others probably just saw the smoke. Either way, you can imagine their fears. This was an alarming situation.
The crew got everyone off the plane while they checked things out. The one image we have is blurry and doesn’t really give us a clue as to what went wrong. Luckily, no one was hurt.
