An incident this morning which
resulted in a gas cooker flaring up resulted in three women being injured at a
school in Fourways, Johannesburg.
It is believed that the women
were cooking when the flames from the gas cooker flared up which in turn burnt
the three women.
ER24 Spokesperson Russel
Meiring said paramedics from the Johannesburg North branch arrived at the school
to find three women sitting in a first aid room, being treated by first aiders.
Meiring added that on
assessment, paramedics discovered that two of the woman had sustained moderate
burn injuries to their faces and arms, while the third sustained minor injuries
to her hands.
He also said that paramedics
took over treatment of the patients and provided them with advanced life
support interventions. Once treated, all three patients were transported to a
nearby hospital for further observations.
Exact details to the cause of
the accident will remain the subject of a police investigation.
