The couple decided to go out of town and have barbecue. In the midst of the preparations, the woman inadvertently fell directly into the fire, and the clothes caught fire. The husband pulled her out of the fire, the flame was extinguished, but the couple decided not to seek help from the hospital.
For four days, the woman tried to cure the burns on her own at home, her condition worsened, so it was decided to call an ambulance.
An ambulance team took the woman to the burn center of the Inozemtsev hospital. After examining the patient, the doctors diagnosed a 1-2-3 degree burn of the torso, the right upper limb 12% of the body surface. The woman was immediately hospitalized.
