Middle School Student's iPhone Bursts Into Flames In Her Pocket! Get The Cellularly Scary & Smokey Deets HERE!!!
Siri must've been pissssed at this innocent girl!
We kid, we kid - but only because we know this little 8th grader is okay and in great health!
A middle school student in Kennebunk, Maine suffered second-degree burns on Friday when an iPhone caught fire in her pants pocket just before class.
…And we thought old folks were the only people thinking technology was an evil thing! LOLz!
The 14-year-old student heard a pop coming from the two-month-old Apple iPhone 5C, and knew something was immediately wrong.
“Immediately, smoke starts billowing from around the student. She knew right away something was wrong and, in a panic, knew her pants were on fire caused by the cellphone.”
The now charred iPhone gave the victim burns on one thigh and her back - before her pants were removed and she was taken to the hospital for treatment.
Good news is, she's made a full recovery!
No word on why the phone caught fire in the first place, but fires usually aren't good for business.
