The incident occurred on Jan. 27 and William Brown, 24, died of a stroke in a Fort Value hospital on January 29, CNN reported.
Brown died from cerebral infarction and herniation after particles from the exploding e-cigarette dissected his left carotid artery, based on the dying certificates.
After being rushed to hospital, Brown was put right into a medically-induced coma and x-rays confirmed that a part of the e-cigarette was lodged in his throat, his household advised CNN affiliate KTVT.
