Exploding vape pen killed Florida man, autopsy confirms

Vape pen explosion kills Florida man

The report lists the cause of death as "projectile wound of the head".

A Florida man was killed by an exploding vape pen, authorities say.

A former CNBC producer was killed when his e-cigarette exploded and lodged into his skull, penetrating his brain, according to an autopsy, the Tampa Bay Times reports. And in 2016, a vape pen user in NY suffered third-degree burns after the pen exploded in his trousers, NBC 4 NY reported.

FEMA recently reported that there were nearly 200 incidents involving exploding vape pens between 2000 and 2016, but D'Elia is the first person in the United States to die as a outcome.

Tallmadge Wakeman D'Elia died on Cinco de Mayo in St. Petersburg after his vape pen burst into flames in his bedroom.

There were at least 195 incidents in which an electronic cigarette exploded or caught fire from 2009 through 2016, resulting in 133 injuries, 38 of which were severe.

The Smok-E Mountain Mech Works vaping device, which is made in The Philippines, is an unregulated mechanical e-cigarette. Many electronic cigarettes look like regular cigarettes, but some owners like to use larger devices such as tank systems or "mods".

Though such incidents are rare, this isn't the first time a spontaneous e-cigarette explosion has raised concerns.

Experts say that people who use vape pens should be careful about how they maintain the batteries.

Smok-E Mountain, however, told ABC its e-cigarettes do not explode, suggesting instead that the device's battery or atomizer was likely to blame.

While the exact circumstances surrounding the explosion are unknown, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention advises against carrying e-cig batteries loose in pockets to avoid coming in contact with coins, keys or metal objects.

And a vape pen exploded in a man's trousers in 2016 in New York, NBC4 reported.
