William Eric Brown in undated family

A Texas man died after a vaping device he was smoking exploded in the parking lot of a vape supply store, severing his carotid artery, KTVT reports.

The medical examiner ruled William Brown's cause of death as penetrating trauma from an exploding vaporiser pen.

Alice Brown, the victim's grandmother and guardian, said her grandson left their home on January 27 to visit Smoke and Vape DZ, a local vaping supply store.

"It just all seems so unreal". "That three-piece thing went into his throat and stayed there, and that's what (doctors) should have taken out as soon as they got to the hospital, and they chose to wait until Monday or Tuesday".

Steve Brown, William Brown's father, said Doctors told the family that William needed surgery to remove the piece of the pen in his neck but that it wasn't urgent so it would have to wait a day or two, the Washington Post reported.

The explosion happened in the parking lot of a Fort Worth vape shop on January 27.

He attempted to use the pen in the auto when the battery exploded with enough force to melt plastic in the vehicle and fling metal debris into Mr Brown's face.

She said he was not a regular smoker - and had been told that there was a certain type of vape pen that could help with his asthma symptoms. She had to go through it to find the pieces of the destroyed vape pen and said she managed to find the key piece - the battery showing the serial number. A medical examiner's report listed his cause of death as a "projectile wound of the head", leaving him with burns on about 80 percent of his body, the Star-Telegram reports.

A USA man has died after an electronic cigarette exploded in his face. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, defective e-cigarette batteries have caused fires and explosions. None of those injuries resulted in death, according to the report.

He was rushed by ambulance to a JPS Health Network hospital in Fort Worth where he was x-rayed and put in a medically induced coma.

According to WFAA News, a man in Florida died previous year after a vape pen exploded, sending debris into his skull.
