EXCLUSIVE

The crash of EgyptAir flight 804 into the Mediterranean Sea that killed 66 people was caused by a hot Apple product … according to a new suit.

The families of several of the victims of the May 19, 2016 crash claim the tragedy was due to the co-pilot’s iPhone 6S or iPad mini overheating in the cockpit and catching fire.

According to the docs … an investigation revealed the device ignited and led to a bigger fire in the cockpit, which ultimately took the plane down.

It should be noted, however — some industry experts have questioned this phone theory … and believe the fire on the plane started beneath the cockpit in the avionics bay due to a short circuit or some kind of explosion.

Still, the families believe there’s enough evidence to hold Apple responsible for the deaths of their loved ones … so they’re suing for damages. The airline is also listed on the suit.

We reached out to Apple and EgyptAir … so far, no word back.
