Samsung Galaxy S III explodes, injures 18 year old girl

This is what happens when a phone explodes
An exploding cellphone is no joke. A Samsung Galaxy S III exploded in the pants of 18 year-old Fanny Schlatter, and as you can see, it did plenty of damage to her thigh not to mention the handset. Now, we've seen people claim that their phone exploded out of nowhere only to find out later that the device was put in the microwave to cover up the fact that it had been dropped in the toilet first. Looking at this situation, one can see that this is not the case here.

There isn't much information on what caused the explosion, but the victim's paints had to be cut to prevent her from sustaining further damage. If you have a sensitive stomach, you might not want to view the damage in the slideshow below. On the other hand, if blood and guts are your thing, we have a new pin-up for you.

The explosion took place at the girl's place of employment and Samsung Switzerland said that it is investigating and will probably send the phone back to Korea for a an examination.
