CCTV footage captured the moment an e-cigarette battery exploded inside a man’s pocket, causing severe burns to his abdomen and hand.
Amone Britel was standing outside of a nightclub he owns in Toulouse, France, when the battery in his vape started shooting sparks out of his jacket pocket.
In a translated interview with French news outlet Ladepeche, Britel explained what he experienced when the explosion occurred.
“Suddenly I heard a noise like sparkler, but 10 times more powerful. And after the shock of the explosion, I realized that I had caught fire.”
