Default Gas cylinder office chair kills 14-year old

A 14 YEAR OLD BOY from Jiaozhou City in China died of blood loss after the gas lifting canister inside his chair sent shrapnel into his bottom.

The news report said that this month three other people had been injured by exploding chairs. This reporter sold ergonomic chairs to public safety dispatch centres and has never heard of this type of occurrence.

Office chairs standardly have the height adjustment regulated by a cylinder containing pressurised gas. Those gas lift adjustment cylinders are manufactured in many countries to various levels of quality.
