Wireless Headphones Explodes on Woman’s Face Mid-Flight

An unnamed Australian woman has a blackened face after her battery-operated headphones exploded while she was using it mid-flight from Beijing to Melboune.
According to the Australian Transport Safety Bureau, she had been sleeping on the plane on 19 February when she heard a loud explosion about two hours into the flight and felt her face burning. She woke up to an explosion.

“They were sparking and had small amounts of fire,” the woman said in an Australian Transport Safety Bureau statement, released on Wednesday.

“As I went to stamp my foot on them the flight attendants were already there with a bucket of water to pour on them.”

The battery in question was the Lithium-ion batteries but the Australian Transport Safety Bureau failed to identify which brand of headphone was involved.
