    What a horrible way to go.

    This happened a year ago or so as well. Snipet from the article...

    "Local reports said that this was the ninth recorded cellphone explosion in China since 2002."

    Goodness...never thought a battery could kill. But there it is ! Unfortunately someone had to die to make us more aware and careful. My condolences to the berieved family. But China, geez... it´s really "charged" up.

    What really can you do to be more careful though? I mean, it's not like I do a battery pull in the shower or anything, or while holding a live wire...

    I feel for the man and his family. What a fluke accident.

    It turned out to be false...just like the exploding battery story a few years back....I never believe anything that comes out of china or any other shady country
