CEDAR HILL, Tx. - A Texas man was rushed to the hospital after his cell phone exploded while he was holding it up to his ear.
Aron Embry said he was making a call on his new Motorola Droid 2 phone when he heard a loud pop, then his ear started bleeding.
Embry told afterdawn.com, "I heard a pop. I didn't feel any pain initially. I pulled the phone down. I felt something dripping. I realized that it probably was blood. I went into the house and as I got into the bathroom and once I got to the mirror and saw it, it was only then I kinda looked at my phone and noticed the screen had appeared to burst outward."
The 30-year-old getting stitches but doctors said he didn't suffer any damage to his hearing.
But one mobile expert has his doubts about what actually happened. Daniel Harrison told FOX News, “…it looks to me like it wasn’t something that was just a manufacture defect. It looks like it was actually user caused."
Motorola is investigating.
