There Danny Williams was... working his job at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, when all of the sudden he noticed something warm and bright. He looked down to find flames shooting up from his pocket.
The source of the fire was Williams' iPod nano. After a year and half of wear-and-tear, the device's lithium ion battery shorted out and went all Sony on him right in the middle of work.
Now, spontaneously combusting at work is bad enough, but Williams faced the added danger of being in the middle of a post-9/11 U.S. airport with smoke and flames shooting out of his person. If the fire didn't get him, the bullets might.
