A man was injured after his mobile phone exploded in Lahore Thursday night.
Forty-year-old Harris put his phone on charge at night and then kept it under his pillow. He was sleeping when the phone exploded.
He was taken to Jinnah Hospital for treatment. Doctors said that he has been burned on 20% of his body.
“The bed caught fire first and then it spread everywhere,” said Jinnah Burn Centre Executive Director Muazzam Nazir Tarrar.
Harris couldn’t even breathe properly when he was brought in, he said on SAMAA TV’s programme Naya Din. “We kept him in the ICU till his condition improved.”
There are burn marks on his face, back and other parts of his body. “He may even need plastic surgery.”
Prof Tarrar said that Harris’ condition is out of danger now. “His health will improve over time”
He advised people against charging their phones at night.
