So much for vaping being safer than smoking, just ask this guy.

While vaping outside a nightclub in France, this guy’s E-Cig explodes in his pocket, causing second-degree burns, Brobible reports.

“All of a sudden I heard a loud bang and a noise like a flare had gone off, only 10 times louder…” the victim told the Daily Mail.


“After the shock of the explosion, I realized that I had caught fire. I did not really understand what was happening to me. The pain only came afterward.”


“I have second-degree burns on my stomach and my jacket melted around my finger where I tried to put the fire out…. Fortunately, I was wearing a cotton T-shirt underneath and not a synthetic one. Also, fortunately, the battery was not in my jeans.”


After watching the explosion and the guy dancing around with flames shooting from his pants,observers came to his assistance, helping put the sparks out.
