Thanks, no doubt, to all the warnings about burning laptop batteries on the internet, a man knew exactly what to do with his HP notebook decided to catch a little fuego. We wouldn’t recommend following what he did, but as soon as he saw smoke he pulled out the battery and threw it outside into the parking lot.
His quick thinking saved his laptop from total destruction, but still left burns from which it will never recover. At least he can still pull the data off.
