Modern smartphones catching fire is not a big deal at all, but, what if the incident happens between the crowd, then it creates a lot of chaos. The same thing happened yesterday when a Jet Airways flight between the Delhi to Indore became an eyewitness to this incident.
The flight between Delhi to Indore had a passenger named Arpita, where she carried three smartphones in her handbag including the Samsung Galaxy J7. Soon after the flight took off (after 15 minutes) the handbag started vomiting smoke, then Arpita called the cabin crew for the help. The crew started using the mini fire extinguishers to stop the smoke, however, the fire extinguisher didn’t work at all, so, without further ado, the cab crew kept the smartphone in the water till the end of their journey.
As of now, there is no exact reason behind the incidents and the cabin crew did their best in the chaotic situation to bring it back to the normal condition. But the question here is, what if there was a different fire hazard? How will the Jet Airway tackle the situation? Is security check on the flight is neglected on the domestic flights?
Here is what the Samsung Galaxy J7 owner Arpita has to say about this:
“I will complain against Jet Airways after I return home. This is a question of safety of passengers in flights. If there is a major fire or blast what will they do when their fire extinguishers don’t work like this.”
As per the core of this disaster, there is no information on how the smartphone suddenly caught the fire. Here is the official press statement from Samsung about the incident.
“We are in touch with relevant authorities for more information. At Samsung, customer safety is top priority.”
These days trusting a smartphone has become a curse on the Humans. From privacy to security threads, smartphone companies should ensure that their devices undergo a thorough security check.
