A teenager suffered horror injuries when an e-cigarette he was smoking exploded in his face.
The 17-year-old was left with a bloody mouth, broken teeth and a hole in his jaw after the explosion.
The boy then had to travel 250 miles from a small town in Nevada to a pediatric hospital in Utah with his mother.
There, doctors rushed him into surgery , working to reconstruct and repair shattered bone.
But the freak accident is just one of thousands in recent years, documented in a a new case study on e-cigarettes which have become increasingly popular in recent years.
