A US man is suing phone manufacturers Samsung for their exploding Galaxy Note 7 phone which he says caused him some severe injuries.
Michael Taylor says he was sleeping one night when his Galaxy phone, which he was charging at the time, caught fire and burned his crotch.
Samsung was forced to recall the entire batch of Galaxy Note 7’s after the issue of combustion started creeping up. Several people were reporting the device catching fire whilst being charged, leading to numerous issues.
Taylor says he had no idea the device had a defective battery, and was charging it whilst asleep. It overheated and caught fire, burning his crotch, legs and sheets.
He claims he suffered 1st, 2nd and 3rd degree burns from the fire, TMZ reports. He had been using the phone for a month, and the incident happened after the recall – but Taylor says the phone should never have been sold in the first place.
