One of Samsung’s newest phone models, the Samsung Galaxy Note 7, is earning a bad reputation after it exploded on Saturday, September 10, in the hands of a six-year-old in Brooklyn, New York. The boy was at home watching videos on the phone in East Flatbush when the incident occurred.
The boy was taken to Downstate Medical Center shortly before 8 p.m. that night for the immediate treatment of the burns he incurred during the explosion. Samsung has asked Galaxy Note 7 owners to return the product as soon as possible to avoid other instances of explosion, since over the past few weeks there have been 30 confirmed cases of Note 7 explosions that have caused fires in cars and houses, and personal injury to people through burns.
