Three year-old son hit by Sony Ericsson debris

An angry The Register reader has told how his Sony Ericsson CST-20 charger exploded on Monday night, spraying the room with shrapnel:

"Swindon man Scott Wichall said the lid of the smoking unit flew across the kitchen, striking his three-year-old son Kieran square in the chest.

... In 2003 the firm had to recall the CST-13 model due to a spate of similar self-destruction issues. Richard Dorman, Sony Ericsson's UK PR man said that an isolated incident is unlikely to precipitate a recall, but that the matter would be fully investigated.

He added that the CST-20, which is packaged with the K600i and V800 handsets amongst others, was not manufactured by the same Thai firm responsible for the CST-13."
