Samsung Galaxy S III explodes in a boy's bed
The boy's mother said that her son had awoken before the smoke alarm was triggered. She added that the family had learned a valuable lesson from the explosion. "We’ve at least learnt (sic) now only to charge phones during the day, and nowhere near fabric or flammable materials," she said. Based on the the reports of the explosion, it seems that no one was hurt by the blast.
In many of these cases, a faulty third-party charger is to blame, especially when it comes to older models where the original accessories might have ended up missing over time. However, there is no evidence that this was the case in this situation.
Thanks for the tip!
