Motorcycle Rider Hits Pole After His Mobile Phone Explodes
A motorcycle rider gets into a road accident in San Jose Del Monte, Bulacan after his mobile phone explodes.
In a shocking incident on Quirino Highway in San Jose Del Monte, Bulacan, a motorcycle rider has fallen into a coma after colliding with a pole. Investigations reveal that the accident occurred due to an explosion originating from the rider’s cellphone, which caused him to lose control.
Jhonelle Paches, the unfortunate motorcycle rider, was traveling along Quirino Highway when tragedy struck. Witnesses reported that the victim’s cell phone suddenly exploded, leading to his loss of control and subsequent collision with a pole.
Traffic enforcer Sharwen Ching-Tai discovered Paches unconscious at the scene, and a burnt cell phone was found near him, indicating its involvement in the incident.
“Pumasok sa isip ko nag short yung phone niya nagkaroon ng paso ang dito niya, dahil sa cellphone na napaso nawalan ng control yung driver,” Ching-tai said.
According to friends who were present during the accident, Paches was found unconscious, with the exploded cell phone still in close proximity to his body. The crash occurred on an uphill section of Quirino Highway, resulting in severe damage to Paches’ motorcycle and helmet.
His sister added that he remains in a comatose state, suffering from brain hematoma and third-degree burns caused by the cellphone explosion.
Electrical engineer Norman Oblanca sheds light on a potential cause of the cellphone explosion, explaining that sweat could have entered the device’s battery.
When sweat comes into contact with the battery’s positive and negative terminals, a dangerous chemical reaction occurs, leading to an explosion. Oblanca emphasizes the risks associated with sweat, as it possesses a higher capability to absorb electrical current compared to rain or other forms of moisture.
