An 18-year-old girl was killed when her mobile exploded as she chatted on it, her family claim.

Uma Oram was reportedly talking on the device as it was plugged in to charge.

She was taken to hospital after being knocked unconscious and suffering injuries to her hand, chest and leg.

Local media quoted her brother as saying that she had wanted to talk to an unnamed family member just after lunch but found that the phone had run out of charge.

Her brother Durga Prasad Oram explained: "As the battery of the mobile phone was draining out, she plugged it for charging while talking over it simultaneously.
"The cell phone... was put on charging when she started talking to a relative. Its battery exploded suddenly.

"Before we could know what exactly happened, Uma fell unconscious. She was declared dead at the hospital."

Smartphone explosion leads to death of Cradle Fund CEO

In a shocking event, Nazrin Hassan, CEO, Cradle Fund died after one of his phones- BlackBerry and Huawei, exploded while charging in the bedroom. At the moment it is not clear which of the two devices blasted that resulted in the unfortunate incident.

As per Nazrin's s brother-in-law, the death was not caused due to the fire as some of the reports suggest, but from the fact that during the explosion, the broken parts of the device hit Hassan on the back of the head which likely caused a blunt trauma.

“He had two phones, one Blackberry and a Huawei. We don't know which one exploded. Who would have thought such an innocuous routine procedure is the reason three young kids will grow up without their father by their side,” Hassan's brother-in-law told The Malaysian Insight.

However, the police claim that the death was caused due to the smoke inhalation from the explosion and not from the shrapnel from the smartphone. According to an official statement issued by Cradle Fund, “The post-mortem report concluded the cause of death as being a complication of blast injuries attributable to an exploding handphone that was being charged next to him."
