Exploding vape pen killed Florida man, autopsy confirms

TV Producer Dies After E-Cigarette Explodes, Lodges in His Skull

TV Producer Dies After E-Cigarette Explodes, Lodges in His Skull

A similar issue happened a year later in Idaho with a father losing nine teeth and suffering second-degree burns after a vape pen exploded in his mouth.

Explosions involving vape pens are uncommon, but faulty devices have been the subject of a handful of media report in recent years. Tallmadge "Wake" D'Elia's official cause of death, which is the first e-cigarette fatality in the USA, was listed as "projectile wound of the head" and ruled accidental.

"This is a bad shock", Christopher D'Elia, the man's father, told ABC Action News.

An autopsy confirmed that a St. Petersburg man found dead earlier this month was killed after his vape pen exploded, burning more than 80 percent of his body.

Tallmadge Wakeman D'Elia died on Cinco de Mayo in St. Petersburg, FL after his vape pen ignited a fire in his bedroom.

The U.S. Fire Administration says there have been 195 cases in which an electronic cigarette exploded or caught fire between 2009 through 2016, resulting in 133 injuries, 38 of which were severe. But there were no recorded deaths in the study's period.

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. In this case, the autopsy noted that D'Elia was using a "mod" type e-cigarette manufactured by Smok-E Mountain.

The explosion sent two pieces of the vape pen into his cranium, the report said. "While the failure rate of the lithium-ion batteries is very small, the consequences of a failure, as we have seen, can be severe and life-altering for the consumer". Wilder told ABC Action News that he, as well as many other local store owners, won't sell unregulated e-cigarettes.

There have been a few incidents of injuries stemming from vape pen explosions.

He explained: 'Any other e-cig that has a computer chip in it prevents that from happening'.

"They're pretty problem-free, I'd definitely say", he said.
