Never keep an iPhone in your pocket because it WILL explode and it WILL burn your ass.
Nah. That's a huge exaggeration. But it did happen to one guy on Sunday.
His name is Gareth Clear, and the hole in the 36-year-old's right butt cheek speaks more than words ever could.
He was tearing up Manly Dam – yes, that's the actual name – in Australia on his mountain bike. He had his cell phone in his back pocket.
Gareth took a tumble, and then noticed that his shorts were spewing smoke.
He told DailyMail.com,
I suddenly saw this incredible plume of smoke. And there was a searing pain that went along with it -- as though someone had pushed a huge block of ice against my leg. It was pretty freaking painful.
Gareth managed to get the phone out of his shorts, but not before it blew a massive hole in them and ripped off three layers of skin.
Here's what it looked like:
He was taken to the hospital, where he will stay for the next couple of days in order to undergo a skin graft.
Stay safe out there.
