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.

    Charge your phone of course at night but don’t use your phone as a pillow during charging.

    Maine 2001 se Aaj tak Samsung Nokia qmobile brand use kiye hain. Or hamesha raat ko charging pe laga kar so jate hain. Aaj tak aisa nai howa. Zaroor is banday ka mobile phone kharab ho ga ya charger 2 number use kia ho ga. Or koi waja nai ho sakti.

    Problem was not with brand but putting under pillow while charging. I always charge at night so that it is fully charged when I leave for work. There is never a problem. The charger is always away from my bed.

    During charging battery become hot as in UPS. The fresh air keeps cool it. But if you put it under your pillow it will become more and more hot with no cooling. So battery exploded.

    I think its due to over charging of mobile or may be battery problem….And we can say that it was hus bad luck bcz mostly people use their mobiles while charging them.And i don’t think its a brand problem either its Samsung or Q.Mobile.Bcz we can’t calim that every device is 100% harmless and safe.So may ALLAH Pak bless that guy with good health as soon as possible.Ameen!

    The phone did not explode but caught fire that is why there are only burn injuries and nno splinter injuries.
