Whoops!
Burnt a LiPo the WORST WAY!

I don't think anyone has ever burnt down a LiPo in as odd a way as I did, just a few hours back!

I built a quad a few weeks back, and I was making minor modifications to the frame. That included drilling holes at a few places, with the 3S LiPo strapped!

I was drilling the last hole and and the drill bit directly hit the LiPo. A 3mm deep hole! Before I could realise what happen, a short flame.
I left the room and it didn't take more than 10 seconds for the whole room to get filled with THICK black smoke, a disgusting smell! A few seconds more and the whole house. Everyone at my home was scared. The neighbours already began calling us. (Thank god, no one called fire dept. before calling us!) I quickly switched on all the exhaust fans and thank god!
The LiPo looked like an electrocuted crow.....! No pictures could be taken because everyone at my home was so angry at me, if I click pictures before them, they wouldn't care to kick me off the home!
Posted this so that you don't drill with a LiPo on...

Sorry about your misfortune, but I'm glad everyone is okay.
