Man sues LG after Optimus F6 explodes in his pants, causing severe burns
Sattar said that he had been using the LG Optimus F6 for months when it burst into flames. His attorney, Lawrence Goldhirsch, said "It was just in his pocket, sitting there, and it blew up." The phone was launched in the U.S. on September 11th, 2013.
After the explosion, Sattar was taken immediately to Weill Cornell Medical Center. There, he was admitted to the hospital's burn center.
