It is the first death to involve a person who was not involved in a vehicle accident.
It's the 12th US death attributed to the faulty inflators and 17th worldwide, including five in Malaysia.
Another person has been killed by an exploding Takata air bag, but this time it wasn't the result of crash. If that happens, the inflators can blow apart a metal canister and shoot out shrapnel which can kill or injure people.
Takata has filed for bankruptcy in the USA and Japan after the largest recall in US history. Honda was Takata's biggest customer before the problems surfaced.
The Japanese air bag maker filed for bankruptcy protection in Tokyo and the US last month, saying that was the only way it could keep on supplying replacements for faulty inflators. The neighbor went outside and found Kuffo sitting in the passenger seat of the vehicle unconscious and bleeding from his face. Both air bags had inflated.
The company did not release the name of the man out of respect for his family, but confirmed that he was not the car's owner and he was working on the vehicle at a private residence.
The victim, who police said was not the car's owner, was working on the interior of the vehicle with a hammer and had taken apart the car's center console, but it wasn't clear what he was trying to fix. But it's not clear what the man was doing or what set off the air bag.

The individual working on the vehicle in Florida died a day after sustaining injuries when the air bag deployed.
The inflators were made from 2005 through 2012 and installed in vehicles manufactured by Nissan Motor (NSANY), Mazda Motor (MZDAF), and Ford (F), according to a National Highway Traffic Safety Administrationnotice.

The OEM noted that 12 recall notices were sent since 2009 to the Accord's registered owners.
