Samsung Galaxy S7 explodes in its owner's hands causing second and third degree burns
At the time of the blast, Mann had his windows open and was able to get the phone out of the car although at one point he claims that the device stuck to his hand. Without a phone to call for help, the injured driver was able to drive himself to a friend's home from where he was driven to the hospital.
The phone that exploded was purchased about six months ago for roughly $1,000. Mann's carrier told him to contact Samsung directly, which he says that he will do. He is planning on filing a lawsuit against Samsung related to the pain from the explosion, and for lost wages. The mechanic was told that it will take eight to nine days for his hands to heal.
