Vapes might save you from lung cancer but thereâ€™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 didnâ€™t do anything out of the norm. Like every device there is a possibility of catastrophic failure.
The post on his Facebook stated â€œWell, itâ€™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 didnâ€™t expect possible. Iâ€™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. Iâ€™ve been doing this for about a year now and assure you I did not do anything I wasnâ€™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. Iâ€™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 theyâ€™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!â€
â€œI 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 thatâ€™s amazing. I just want to bring to light this is possible that they can explode without warning. I would have said â€œno way thatâ€™s possibleâ€ until now. Thank you again for everyone that has not went to the instant â€œthis is fakeâ€ and actually know Iâ€™m real, this really happened and Iâ€™m blessed this could have been so much worse. Thank you again for those who understand the meaning of this post!â€
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.
