'I came home after work, put it to charge for a little bit before I hard class. I went to put it on my waste and it caught fire,' he says.
The man said he was using the official Samsung charger.
At a press conference to announce the recall today, Samsung said that 35 cases of the fault have been reported.
It estimates the problem affects 24 in a million devices, which is around one for every 42,000 sold.

It is unusual for Samsung to confirm a delay in sales of a device.
Samsung launched the Galaxy Note 7 on August 19 in some markets including South Korea, the US.
The launch of the phone has now been delayed in the UK, sources have told TechRadar.
The phone features an iris scanner that lets users unlock the phone by detecting patterns in the eyes.

Faults with the new premium flagship device could deal a major blow to the South Korean giant.
The firm was counting on the Galaxy Note 7 to maintain its strong mobile earnings momentum against Apple's new iPhones expected to be unveiled next week.
The device has been on shelves for two weeks.
