"It was on the ground and it was just bubbling. There was smoke everywhere," Moore said. "I have no idea what could have happened, what could have caused that," Terry Moore said.
After suffering the burns, Moore said he doesn’t anticipate getting a new cellphone anytime soon.
"I really don't want anyone's life in jeopardy. I praise God that my son survived. It could have been worse. But I think we need to bring this to the public's attention," Terry told KSDK.
Apple would not give a comment to KSDK about the incident, saying that it was not something that happened often. Moore was taken to the hospital with first- and second-degree burns and said he plans to file a complaint with the company.
