SYD­NEY — A New Dawn Col­lege stu­dent is re­cov­er­ing in hospi­tal with burn in­juries fol­low­ing Gouthro an in­ci­dent at the school last week.

Michael Gouthro, a stu­dent in the weld­ing pro­gram, was se­verely burned af­ter his clothes reportedly caught fire. He was trans­ported to the Queen El­iz­a­beth II Health Sciences Cen­tre in Halifax where his mother, Tammy Lynn Gouthro, said he is still re­cu­per­at­ing. The Nova Sco­tia Depart­ment of Labour and Ad­vanced Ed­u­ca­tion said in a state­ment that it was aware of the in­ci­dent and has been in touch with the Syd­ney school.

“While the depart­ment is not in­ves­ti­gat­ing as it was not a work­place in­ci­dent, it is pro­vid­ing guid­ance to the in­sti­tu­tion to help im­prove safety pro­to­cols and prac­tices.” New Dawn Col­lege did not re­spond to re­quests for com­ment.
