iPhone 6 CATCHES FIRE Burns Owner 4

The phone combusted and burned a hole through the man’s pants leaving him with second-degree burns on his leg. He’s now waiting for Apple to explain how this could have happened.

The man displayed pictures of his burned jeans as well as photos of the torched iPhone, and severe burns.

“It’s been a little over a week now, so I’ve had the opportunity to get some good medicine on it,” said Lechter.

Lechter is nursing a burn on his leg; he says he got from his iPhone 6.

“It wasn’t like a puff of smoke, I could actually feel my leg burning and I couldn’t figure out what it was,” he said.
