France A332 enroute on Aug 21st 2023, lithium ion battery's thermal runaway
Last Update: August 30, 2023 / 15:51:24 GMT/Zulu time
A passenger reported there was suddenly a pungent electrical odour, the passenger checked his phone which was okay, then looked around. One of the seat neighbours had the smartphone on charge and understood it was that phone that was about to suffer a thermal runaway. Cabin crew got hold of the phone, put it onto the floor and discharged two or three fire bottles and cans of water onto it, then took it away in a secure container.
