Default Shocked by the battery!! Could the RC be ruined?

I feel like an idiot. I got a Hosim 9155 rc for my nephews bday and wanted to charge the battery first. I'm a totally newbie and the plugs were so difficult to disconnect. So I used metal tweezers to pry the plugs apart and sparks went flying. It also smelled like burning plastic. Do you think these sparks have ruined the RC or made it unsafe to give as a gift?

Keep an eye on the battery. If it puffs up don't use that pack and put it in a fireproof container. Do not just put it out in the garage without it being in something.

Watch this!
