Turned on light fixture in bedroom. Immediately one of the bulbs in the fixture exploded. Result was the glass bulb fully separated from its light socket. Turned off power to light fixture. Had to use needlenose pliers to remove socket from light fixture. Retrieved blown off bulb from bed and cleaned area of glass. Replaced with new light bulb.

Failure was an unsafe failure which could have caused injury and/or fire. Quick thinking to turn off light fixture prevented an unsafe event.
