Not saying the battery in the iphone is this type but have a look at this. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z3o_2mwRPdw
I'll concede that a short between the layers in a lithium ion cell can lead to instant flamage. Usually this only happens if there has been physical damage to the battery like bending a cell or a puncture in the cell's flimsy wrapping, so if he bought one of those fix your own screen kits before this than that's on him (defective spludger maybe ). Apple batteries aren't immune to problems though. I've had 2 macbook battery packs swell up because half the cells in them (made by Sanyo btw) had puffed up like pillows. They did not short, but are very susceptible to doing so in this state, but iphone would split in half before they could swell that much.
The other thing that is obvious to me is the "security camera" movement. It looks like someone was holding a camcorder and trying hard not to move. Real security cameras are stationary and don't move at all as they're screwed in and/or mounted to a solid part of the building. Anyway, that's my take on it... "Trust but verify" is the mindset that I have when it comes to stuff like this...
