Vapes might save you from lung cancer but there’s still a possibility that it might just remove your face altogether.
Andrew Hall has been trying to quit smoking for years, he finally was able to curb the addiction but came at a price. One random day while taking a hit of his vape kit the battery inside of it exploded. It lacerated and burned his face while knocking seven of his teeth.
Along with the pictures Hall gave a warning that this is possible with any vape pen. he assured that he did everything right, he didn’t do anything out of the norm. Like every device there is a possibility of catastrophic failure.
The post on his Facebook stated “Well, it’s been a really rough 24 hours+ but I feel I have to share. Thank you for my family and especially Airelle for taking care of me but yesterday morning I was getting ready for work when I had something happen to me that I didn’t expect possible. I’m currently in the ICU and doing well so rest assured and these are very graphic photos. I Vape (I know, terrible and uncool) but I no longer do and I hope to possible sway those that do to maybe reevaluate or find other methods of smoking. I’ve been doing this for about a year now and assure you I did not do anything I wasn’t supposed to (battery was in right, always had the shop put it together when I first bought it and add things and maintenance it the right way while taking their advice) but it exploded in my face. I’ve lost at least 7 teeth, 2nd degree burns to face and neck and have been pulling chunks of plastic, teeth and foreign objects from mouth, throat and lips. I was lucky and they’re was a huge amount of damage to the room in my house I was in as well. Please feel free to share my story and take care. Thank you again friends, work and family that have reached out to offer help, I greatly appreciate it!”
“I did revise this to state clearly that before the laws changed yes, it was easier for me to have them build my coils. I did it after the laws changed and did everything myself. I never had any issues with over heating or concerns until the unfortunate happened. I know vapes help people quit smoking cigarettes and that’s amazing. I just want to bring to light this is possible that they can explode without warning. I would have said “no way that’s possible” until now. Thank you again for everyone that has not went to the instant “this is fake” and actually know I’m real, this really happened and I’m blessed this could have been so much worse. Thank you again for those who understand the meaning of this post!”
Using vapes to quit smoking works most of the time, but if exploding kits becomes a trend then people are going to have to look for an alternative.
