Description: A man from Fort Worth, Texas, has died of a massive stroke after an e-cigarette exploded in his face while he was attempting to use it, according to his family. He was just weeks away from his 25th birthday. According to NBC News, William Brown’s death certificate states he died from cerebral infarction and herniation after the debris from the exploding vape pen cut his left carotid artery. Alice Brown, William’s grandmother who raised him, told CBS DFW, “He had a future ahead of him; a life ahead of him.” On Jan. 29, William reportedly went to a local vaping store, Smoke & Vape DZ. The last words the licensed electrician told his grandmother were, “I’ll be right back, granny.” According to Smoke & Vape DZ, Brown did not purchase anything from their store but asked for help using his Mechanical Mod style vape pen. He was informed by the manager that the store did not sell that particular brand, as it was known to have issues. The manager called an ambulance when they saw Brown in trouble following the explosion, which occurred in William’s car in Smoke & Vape DZ’s parking lot, according to CBS DFW. He was taken by ambulance to John Peter Smith Hospital (JSP) in Fort Worth. Brown’s family told CBS DFW that doctors took x-rays and knew William had a piece of the vape pen lodged in his throat, but allege they never operated on him. Instead, he was put in a medically-induced coma. His grandmother calls it “murder.” “He should have made it if they had done the surgery,” she told the news outlet. Due to privacy laws, JPS cannot discuss specifics, but they did release a statement saying: “We hold ourselves to the highest standards in providing high-quality healthcare and will take family concerns seriously as we review all that transpired.” Alice said she has no intention of suing the hospital or the company that produced the e-cigarette that caused the tragic accident, as it will not bring her grandson back.
