Submission + - Exploding cell phone battery may have killed a man

LingNoi writes: A man in Korea, was found dead at his workplace Wednesday morning and his mobile phone battery was melted in his shirt pocket.

No one knows for sure yet but a doctor who examined the body said, "He sustained an injury that is similar to a burn in the left chest and his ribs and spine were broken"

We have heard of other dangerous battery products here on Slashdot. Is this going to be the first in a long line of deaths for the future?
