We are learning of a new case of an e-cigarette burn, something we are hearing about more and more these days. This time, Paige Kadella says she was in the backseat with her daughter Ashlynn as the family was heading out on a camping trip when something terrible happened.
“All of a sudden I hear the crackling noise, so I look down and my purse is on fire,” she said. Kadella claims the lithium battery that powered the device had exploded into flames.
Kadella suffered burns to her hands, but Ashlynn, who is only 18 months old, had chemical and fire burns to her left hand, arm, and ear. She is still undergoing skin graft surgeries to repair the damage.
“We will eventually find out who it was that wholesaled the product and the manufacturer of the battery,” said her attorney. “Everybody in the supply chain is accountable for this tragedy.”
