Charger Exploded

HP Pavilion Notebook - 15-ab254sa (ENERGY STAR)
Microsoft Windows 10 (32-bit)

I was using my laptop when my charger started really quietly crackling and then exploded and burnt my leg. The charger was being used for the first time that day so it wouldn't have overheated and it was a truly terrifying experience. I've seen a few people say they have had issues with exploding chargers but I don't know what to do about the situation and it was very dangerous.


I have attached the burn recieved from the charger.
