Man was 'playing mobile game while charging' when...

The unidentified man in this graphic image was allegedly playing a mobile game while charging his phone when the battery suddenly exploded.

Erfel Trongcoso Dy, who posted the photo last August, reminded his Facebook friends to refrain from using their phones or tablets while being charged.

He said the victim was playing games and charging at the same time when the accident happened. He, however, did not give the person's identity.


Some netizens were frightened and scared while others doubted the authenticity of the picture, saying they believe that the damage on the man's hands was inflicted by a powerful firecracker during the new year celebration.
