E-cig explosion kills FL man

Maine West pushes city council to adopt vaping ordinance

The autopsy revealed that not only had the device exploded and started a fire, it somehow made a projectile wound in D'Elia's skull. It still remains unclear as to what prompted the pen to combust in the first place; however, shoddy manufacturing may be an option. Injuries to his face suggested that the vape pen exploded. 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. He also suffered burns on about 80 percent of his body. The autopsy noted that the e-cigarette was manufactured by Smok-E Mountain and was a "mod" type device.

"The two major causes of dramatic failures with the larger units are overcharging of the battery and then the shorting of the battery", said Thomas Kiklas, the chief financial officer of the Tobacco Vapor Electronic Cigarette Association.

Gary Wilder told ABC he refuses to sell the devices, fearing they will overheat.

A representative from Smok-E Mountain told ABC affiliate WFTS that it believed the problem was related to the device's atomizer or battery, and not the device itself. The U.S. Fire Administration reports that "there were 195 separate e-cigarette fire and explosion incidents in the United States reported by the media between 2009 and 2016".


The Food and Drug Administration recommends that smokers should not leave pens charging overnight or use off-brand chargers.

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

There were 195 separate e-cigarette fire and explosion incidents in the United States reported by the media between 2009 and 2016, according to data released previous year by the US Fire Administration.

Deputy fire marshal Steven Lawrence, who attended the scene, said vape pens can "become pieces of flying debris and shrapnel". In 2016, an e-cigarette exploded in a NY man's trousers pocket.
