An Arkansas man who bought an e-cigarette to help him quit smoking had his plans blow up in his face — literally.

Josh Swartz says the e-cigarette exploded while he was using it, Fox News reports.

"I put it to my mouth and as soon as I pressed the button on the bottom, the device exploded," he told a local TV station.

In addition to burns on his mouth, throat, and hand, Schwartz suffered severed lips and shattered teeth. They believe the device’s battery caused the explosion.
