Last week Engadget reported that a man was killed by an exploding cell phone battery. Turns out he was carrying a homemade pistol, which fell on the ground, discharged and he was hit by the bullet. Engadget reports:
According to some roughly translated reports from Sohu.com, the “imitation firearm with bullets” suddenly fell to the ground at one point, which caused the bullets to fire up into the man’s chest and neck arteries, leading to massive blood loss
The bullet damaged his cellphone which was the reason for the confusion in the media.
