IAmA 25yr old woman who nearly burned to death at 16. AMA! NSFW
I was 16 years old and I was sitting in my girl friend's car while two of our guy friends were huffing glade from a trash bag in the back seat. It was winter so we had the windows rolled up to keep the heat in. One of the boys in the back seat was so out of it that he lit a lighter and the entire inside of the car went up in flames. There was so much gas in the car that the air was literally on fire and we were trapped inside. It was a two door car and my friend and I were in the front seats talking while the two boys in the backseats were huffing air freshner cans from a trash bag. When the fire started the boys pushed us in our seats forward and left us seatbelted in and burning in the car while they escaped. She and I suffered first, second, and third degree burns on our faces and hands while the boys who left us in the car had burns so minor they didn't even need to go to the hospital and they had no scars once those minor burns healed. I spent weeks in the hospital burn unit and had to make weekly trips back for months afterwards as well as having to wear a compression glove and almost having to have a skin graft. I have major scars on my face and hands that will never go away but even the doctors told us, we are lucky to be alive. Ask Me Anything!
