A Texas man has died after an e-cigarette exploded in his face. Authorities say 24-year-old William Brown was using the e-cig in the parking lot outside a vape shop when it blew up, sending fragments into his face and throat.
Doctors say those fragments damaged Brown’s left carotid artery and caused a massive stroke, which killed him. More than 195 cases of e-cigarettes exploding or catching fire were reported between 2009 and 2016.
