One might not ever think a laptop could possibly explode. Think again, it has already happened! Fire officials in Bucks county are investigating what caused a woman’s laptop to explode injuring her.
“It blew up. It flipped my computer back and the battery pack and all came out this way,” Loretta Luff recalled, “The next thing I knew, my shirt was on fire, I grabbed that and took that off and I think that’s when I singed my hair.”
Even though she burned her hair, face, arm and foot, Luff considers herself lucky. She says she is grateful she and her disabled husband escaped worse injuries when her Dell laptop exploded Sunday afternoon.
Luff was able to extinguish the fire by dumping water on the computer. Doctors told the 72 – year – old, her burns are chemical related. As of today she is recovering from her injuries.
