Boy Blinded By Exploding E-Cigarette

This is not the first time an e-cigarette exploded. The U.S. Fire Administration has previously reported that about 25 reports of exploding e-cigarettes occurred from 2009 to 2014.

A 14-year-old has been blinded in one eye and potentially faces permanent damage to his hands after allegedly testing an e-cigarette at a mall kiosk in Brooklyn, New York. The latest in a string of similar incidents, the teenager’s injury may raise questions over the safety of the devices as well as how much they are marketed to youth.
