Samsung Galaxy 2 Spews Smoke and Sparks on Flight to Singapore

After the botched recall of the very explodey Galaxy Note 7, Samsung just cannot catch a break. On Friday, during an IndiGo flight from Chennai to Singapore, a Samsung Galaxy Note 2 in the overhead compartment started spewing smoke and sparks.

A statement from IndiGo reads:

The crew quickly identified minor smoke coming from the hat-rack of seat 23 C. Taking the precautionary measure, the cabin crew on priority relocated all passengers on other seats, and further observed smoke being emitted from a Samsung Note 2, which was placed in the baggage (of a passenger) in the overhead bin. There was no fire observed but sparks were observed.
