Cell phone off the hook

0 comments

The cell phone initially blamed for the death of a South Korean worker could be innocent after all. 

First reports said the man had been killed when his cell phone's battery exploded, a conclusion that was drawn because the the battery in his shirt pocket was found melted.
However, the National Institute of Scientific Investigation now believes the injuries – burns and a broken ribs and spine – were too substantial to have been caused by the cell phone battery.
A formal conclusion will take about 15 days, but so far it looks like the LG phone is off the hook.
