An unnamed minor sustained burn injuries to the leg when his iPod Touch caught fire while tucked inside his pocket. The device, which was turned off when the incident occurred, popped and burst suddenly into flames, causing the youngster’s pants to ignite. The flames traversed the child’s pants and undergarments, resulting in second-degree burns to the hip and upper leg area.
The child’s mother, Lynette Antrobus, filed suit against device manufacturer Apple, as well as several of the retail personnel who sold the iPod device to the family. The suit requests $75,000 for medical costs, the damaged device, and pain and suffering.
