The battery in the victim’s "rigorously tested" phone is believed to have exploded, sending telephonic shrapnel through the 33-year-old’s heart and lungs.
This appears to mirror the experience of a Chinese welder, whose Nokia cell phone’s battery exploded, puncturing his heart with a resultantly broken rib. The 22-year-old died after being taken to hospital.
