ALBERTA, CANADA — An electronic cigarette exploded in a Canadian teenager's face this past week, causing severe burns and leading to emergency surgeries.

Sixteen-year-old Ty Greer was taking a toke in his mother's jeep when it suddenly blew up, only two inches from his face. At the time, the boy's father says the pain was so excruciating Ty said he wanted to die.

His father described the accident as a 2 foot by 2 foot fireball engulfing his son's face, burning the back of Ty's throat and his tongue. Luckily, he'd been wearing glasses at the time, so his eyes were not damaged.

The teenager is being treated for first and second-degree burns, and has undergone two root canals to fix some of his broken teeth.

The e-cigarette was a Chinese-manufactured Wotofo Phantom, purchased at a local smoke shop in Alberta.
