We know have a lot of different alternatives from smoking. Since cigarettes have components like nicotine that greatly bring damage to our bodies, people of our generation continue to bring new products to help those who want to do themselves away from cigarettes.
One of those is the Vape, which has recently came into the market targeting most especially the younger generation. Vape is an electronic cigarette that is usually battery-operated. You inhale and exhale the heated vapor it produces.
But then, though this thing keeps you from the scary effects of nicotine, it brings you a different type of danger since it is battery-operated it is prone to explosion.
Unfortunately, someone has felt the wrath of the electronic cigarette. A 17-year old boy has gone through a very traumatizing experience with a vape, after it exploded on his mouth.
The wounds over his face and mouth looked very painful, his teeth almost fell off even his nose suffered so much.
The boy’s mother shared that the battery of her son’s vape wasn’t actually working well anymore, that is why he went to meet with a friend he was chatting over facebook to swap their vape’s battery.
“After my son received the battery, he immediately put it up on his vape and tried to use it, that was when the vape exploded. It could possibly be because the battery wasn’t compatible with the vape.”
The boy was brought to nearest hospital but will be transferred into East Avenue Medical Center so they can thoroughly check on him.
“Since this type of injury is very dangerous we will mostly be checking on the patient’s breathing because he might feel difficulties over it.”
The boy is currently being observed for any further complications.
On the other hand, the mother expressed her disappointments over other vape users who instead of trying to comfort his son, they chose to condemn him. She said that the incident was no fake news and that she only wants to spread awareness to others who use vape.
The staff of the medical facility where the boy was confined also advised the public that vapes are still very dangerous and they should always make sure to be pre-cautious and always consider their safety before anything else.
