    SEE IT: E-cigarette battery explodes inside woman’s designer purse at crowded New Jersey mall

    A 29-year-old mother from New Jersey suffered burns after an e-cigarette battery exploded inside her Louis Vuitton purse at a crowded mall.
    "I thought someone had dropped a bomb. My whole bag was engulfed in flames … everyone ran out of the store," Mara McInerney told the Daily News.
    As McInerney reached into her purse while checking out at Sunglass Hut, a loud bang echoed from her bag.
    "It was not even the complete e-vape that did it. It was just a loose battery. It was terrifying," she explained. McInerney then dumped the contents of her purse immediately onto the floor.


    The incident took place Sunday at Freehold Raceway Mall on the anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks. Other shoppers ran out of the store in a panic when they heard the explosion.
    Surveillance video from inside the store showed McInerney and the store clerk cowering as flames and smoke rose from the $1,800 bag.
    This isn't the first time e-cigs have caused explosive problems.

    In April, a Brooklyn teen and a 26-year-old Queens woman were both injured in e-cig accidents, proving just how unpredictable the devices can be.

    New York Sen. Chuck Schumer in May called for the federal government to investigate cases where e-cigarettes suddenly burst into flames and injure users.
    McInerney suffered burned fingertips in the mishap, but told The News that trauma from the experience still lingers. She said she’ll never use e-cigs again.
    "The biggest question I ask myself is this: Is it worth it? Is it worth losing a hand over, or possibly having my child's face blown off?” McInerney said. “The answer is no."

    It wasn't...well..not originally.

    The incident was filmed on a store security camera....and the video posted up above was someone using their phone..in their hand...to film
    the playback of the store security camera footage on a video screen monitor of some sort.
