Mobile Phone Explodes in Hong Kong

April 19, 2004

A mobile phone exploded on April 12 and slightly injured the man who had been talking into it, local broadcasters reported, according to the Associated Press. The man was standing in line at a bank when the phone mysteriously blew up, Commercial Radio and television ATV reported. ATV showed footage of phone pieces laying on the floor of the bank lobby, with police gathered around the scene. “I was just calling my boss to say I would be returning to work a few minutes late, and when I pressed the button to hang up, the phone was suddenly flying everywhere,” the man told ATV. The broadcast reports gave no indication about how it could have exploded, but many similar accidents have been attributed to faulty or counterfeit batteries.
