The woman was left covered with horrible burns and is still suffering from pain after the explosion of the grill.
Rebecca Rogers (36 years) from Wilmington, North Carolina in August was in the apartment of a friend where she was invited to a BBQ when this horror began.
The woman decided to help clean the grill that they used for cooking, and which stood on the patio of the apartment, but she didn’t know that it still works.
When she opened the lid, up shot a huge fireball that singed her face and torso. At the same time broke out the bottom of the grill where the gas tube, and the flame covered her legs. Screaming in pain, Rebecca ran inside the apartment, while the frightened women friends called an ambulance.
It was immediately taken to the hospital, and then transferred to intensive care at the Jaycee Burn Centre in chapel hill for a week.
Rebecca received burns of first and second degree of the entire body. The doctors had to remove large parts of skin.

Woman recalls: “After the skin grafts was very hard to move. I needed help even to go to the bathroom or take a shower. Now I need to wear a compression garment and take it off several times a day to apply ointment on the burns. Emotionally it’s very hard, I can’t do anything that I usually make, and I need help with everyday things”.
Rebecca has left scars on the whole body, and every day she suffers from terrible pain. The woman says: “Now I’m trying to lead a semblance of a normal life, despite the fact that it would be a dream for a long time. I was left with red marks all over my body. And for someone who had worked as a model, it’s pretty hard. But I’m lucky to have friends and family that help me with daily things such as grocery shopping or Laundry”.
The process of recovery will take 9 to 12 months, but Rebecca hopes to return soon to normal life and take care of 2 sons – 20-year-old Timothy and 10-year-old Nicholas.
Rebecca says: “I hope ever to wear the shirt. But seriously, I would like not to feel pain in the hands and feet. To return to normal life. To attend the football game son and not to hide behind long sleeves and umbrella, because I can’t beneath him to be. Sure can tell you one thing. No more gas grills”.
