In August 2018, a mother in North Andover, Massachusetts saved her two children from an electric toy car before it burst into flames.
Michelle Kline was nearby when her children’s toy car began to smoke. At the time, her 16-month-old and three-year-old were buckled in the toy car. After she got them out, it took approximately two minutes for the vehicle to burst into flames and leave only charred remains. The children are okay and suffered no injuries.
The electric toy car, a $500 SPORTrax Awesome XL, was purchased as a birthday present for the Kline’s three-year-old and five-year-old.
