24-year-old man dies after an e-cigarette exploded in his face

A 24-year-old man in Texas died after a vape pen exploded in his face, according to a medical examiner.

William Brown from Fort Worth was using a vape pen when it exploded, severing his left carotid artery and causing him to have a "cerebral infarction," i.e., a stroke, according to a preliminary report from the Tarrant County medical examiner's office.

He died two days later on Jan. 29 at a local hospital.
