First Death From Vape Explosion Recorded

First Death From Vape Explosion Recorded

A few days after D'Elia's tragic death, an eighteen (18) year old in MI suffered severe burns when e-cigarette batteries he was carrying in his pocket exploded.

Firefighters found Tallmadge Wakeman D'Elia's burned body in the upstairs bedroom of his St. Petersburg home May 5 after a neighbor reported seeing flames, WTSP reported.

D'Elia's death is the first in the United States caused by a vape pen, according to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), which keeps statistics on e-cigarettes. The official cause of death was "projectile wound of head" and was ruled an accident.

According to a Facebook page for the business, the manufacturer is located in Cebu City in the Philippines.

The Intercept reported the request as confirmed by Ahmed Al-Rumaihi, who was an investor with the nation's sovereign wealth fund. The reports about the payments to Cohen drew largely on a "suspicious activity report" or SAR, filed by First Republic Bank.


He also suffered burns on about 80% of his body.

A man has died after a vape pen exploded and lodged fragments into his skull, a post-mortem examination has found.

Tallmadge D'Elia, who reportedly worked as a technical supervisor at CNBC in New Jersey, was only thirty-eight (38) years old. "The vast majority of vaping devices on the market carry the same fire risk as other products that use lithium-ion batteries, such as cellphones and laptops".

The report stated: "No other consumer product places a battery with a known explosion hazard such as this in such close proximity to the human body".
