Default A man dies after his e-cigarette explodes in his face

A Texas man died of a massive stroke after the e-cigarette he was using exploded and tore his carotid artery.

The Tarrant County Medical Examiner's office says that William Brown died in a Fort Worth hospital on January 29 -- just weeks shy of his 25th birthday. The death certificate says he died from cerebral infarction and herniation after debris from the exploding vape pen dissected his left carotid artery.

The explosion reportedly happened on January 27, in the parking lot of a store that sells smoking and vaping supplies.

Smoking used to take 40 years to kill you. Smoking is getting more aggressive.

That’s technology for you, and millennials. They don’t want to have to work for major life milestones like college, home ownership, death, marriage, children, etc. they just want everything handed to them now now now. I’ll never understand these techno-savvy kids.
