Expected behaviour

No exception to be thrown

Actual behaviour

highcharts.js:198 Uncaught TypeError: Cannot read property 'destroy' of null
    at a.Pointer.drop (highcharts.js:198)
    at HTMLDocument.onDocumentMouseUp (highcharts.js:199)
drop @ highcharts.js:198
onDocumentMouseUp @ highcharts.js:199

Live demo with steps to reproduce

I am creating the chart in React, with config like:

chart: {
  events : {
  selection: function (event) {
    //do something that destroys react component

Basically when the user selects a range in the chart, the react component destructs and loads a new component with the data for the selected time range.

However, it seems the highcharts chart when destroyed this way, results in a null pointer exception

Affected browser(s)

All browsers.

Highcharts 6.
