Mobile phones accidents have led to grievous injuries but it turned fatal for the 45-year-old CEO in Malaysia. Nazrin Hassan, the head of the Cradle Fund, died a few days ago, due to an exploding handphone that was being charged next to him, according to his postmortem report.

One of Hassan’s two smartphones exploded while charging in his Malaysia bedroom and it caught fire. From the available reports, it appears that the initial explosion caused some sort of injury that may have incapacitated the man. A message from the family that has been circulating on social media quoted Nazrin’s brother-in-law that at some point the phone had overheated and exploded, causing a blunt trauma at the back of Nazrin’s head and caused his death.

Cradle chief operations officer Razif Aziz said: “Cradle has lost a visionary and creative genius, and the world has lost an amazing human being. Those of us who have been fortunate enough to know and work with Nazrin have lost a dear friend and an inspiring mentor.”
