Exploding E-Cigarette Kills Texas Man

A Texas man died after his electronic cigarette exploded and pieces of the device ripped open his neck artery.

The incident occurred on Jan. 27 and William Brown, 24, died of a stroke in a Fort Worth hospital on January 29, CNN reported.

Brown died from cerebral infarction and herniation after debris from the exploding e-cigarette dissected his left carotid artery, according to the death certificate.

After being rushed to hospital, Brown was put into a medically-induced coma and x-rays showed that part of the e-cigarette was lodged in his throat, his family told CNN affiliate KTVT.

Ruth Bader Ginsburg Makes First Public Appearance Since Cancer Surgery

In her first public appearance since cancer surgery in December, U.S. Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg on Monday attended a musical celebration of her life.

Ginsburg, 85, did not speak. She sat in the back of the National Museum of Women in the Arts in Washington and her presence was not announced, the Washington Post reported.

Ginsburg has not been seen in public since her lung cancer surgery (pulmonary lobectomy) on Dec. 21. Recovery from that type of surgery usually takes six to eight weeks, experts say.

The performance "Notorious RBG in Song" was about Ginsburg's life in law. It was created and performed by her daughter-in-law, the soprano Patrice Michaels, the Post reported.
