A Texas man was injured when his Motorola Droid exploded as he talked on his cell phone. The man had just finished a call when he heard a loud “pop” and felt blood start trickling down his face. The screen had burst outward, causing lacerations by his ear. He was immediately taken to the emergency room where he received stitches to close the wound. Motorola is currently investigating the incident. This is not the first time an exploding phone has caused injuries. A 23-year-old man was killed in August when his phone exploded, and a similar incident took the life of a 27-year-old woman in January. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission has issued warnings for cell phone users, advising users to keep their phones away from metal objects and liquids. These warnings were issued in response to a 19-year-old Wyoming woman who suffered third-degree burns while she slept because her phone caught fire as it was charging.
