shrapnel

電子タバコの話題です。

何と、吸っていた電子タバコが爆発してしまったそうです。


A 14-year-old from New York has been left with permanent injuries after an electronic cigarette he was holding exploded in his face, despite the fact that he was under the legal age to be provided with such a device. An electronic cigarette store and a prominent Brooklyn shopping mall are now facing a lawsuit, following the incident that cost the boy the sight in one of his eyes.

“I was shocked. I was bleeding out of my nose,” said Leor Domatov.

(中略)

The force of the explosion blasted shrapnel into the teenager’s face, causing devastating damage to his eye.

とんでもない話です。事故にあった14歳少年はそもそもタバコを吸っていい年齢ではありませんが、この事故で眼に傷害を負ったようです。

"Shrapnel"という単語は、「榴散弾」と訳されていますが、ここでは電子タバコの器具が破裂し飛び散った破片を指しています。

"shrapnel"の由来は、散榴弾を発明したイギリスの陸軍将校の名前に因むそうです。
