Study Warns Cell Phones Could Cause Airliner Crash

Date: 11/7/2007 2:55:52 PM

There are worse things than sleeping with your dog. Sleeping with your cell phone, for example .

 

Jeannine of Plymouth, N.C., was rudely awakened the other night by the frantic barking of her sons Labrador Retriever, who was sharing the bed with Jeannines 15yearold son and his Motorola cell phone.

The cell phones battery overheated during the night, setting fire to the bed.

"The dog pulled the phone from the bed and my son beat out the flames with a pillow," Jeannine said. The boy suffered burns to his hand but there were no serious injuries.

Neither the dogs bravery nor the cell phones perfidy is unusual. There have been numerous reports of cell phones catching fire sometimes while in someones pocket. Some fires have been attributed to defective batteries, others to user error, such as using the wrong charger.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission last year issued some safety tips but didnt say anything about not sleeping with your phone.

Cell phone battery recalls handled by CPSC include the Kyocera Smartphone, Kyocera Slider, K400 and 3200 Sries and Verizon Wireless LGbrand cell phones.
