The Coffee Machine That Dispensed Hot DeathS

Last month, Yogesh Singh was getting coffee from a machine in a stall while taking a break from helping his father run a tent shop. He was tired and needed a pick-me-up.

He pressed the buttons and inserted his cup, waiting for his beverage to brew. But instead of dispensing coffee, the machine rumbled and shook before exploding in Yogesh's face. It sent shrapnel and scalding coffee grounds into his head and chest, killing him instantly.

He had just wanted an energy boost, but the coffee machine had other plans. Maybe relying on the heroes at Starbucks to do such dangerous work isn't such a bad idea.
