ONE TIME WEB USE ONLY - FEE APPLIES FOR REUSE - Pic Shows: The woman's iPhone 5s exploded from overcharging; A young woman has suffered burns to her hand after her overheated iPhone 5s caught fire in her bed while it was charging. The 24-year-old bank clerk, identified as Nur Filzah Abdul Rahman, shared photos of her burned phone on social media after the incident, which took place at the city of Shah Alam in Western Malaysia�s Selangor State. The unlucky woman, who was using an iPhone 5s, said she usually charges the device on the floor, but on the night of the blaze she had left it charging on the mattress before falling asleep. But around 4am, she awoke feeling heat behind her body and when she reached out she ended up grasping the burning phone with her hand. Shocked, Nur Filzah leapt out of the bed to turn the lights on and discovered that the mattress had also caught fire in her smoke-filled room. She called her housemates who managed to extinguish the fire by throwing a bucket filled with water over it, and Nur Filzah was immediately hospitalised in order to take care of her burns. She later shared images of her burned hands online. Reportedly the young woman had changed her phone�s battery two months ago. Prior to that for the past four years she did not have any issues with it. Picture: AsiaWire/australscope
