In­juries: Light and heat burns

The Press and Journal (Inverness, Highlands, and Islands) - - NEWS -

The burns suf­fered by vic­tims of the Par­sons Green ter­ror at­tack will de­pend on how close they were to the ex­plo­sion, an ex­pert has said.

Iso­bel Kearl, na­tional train­ing of­fi­cer for St John Am­bu­lance, said flash burns are caused by in­tense heat or light or both.

She said:“The flash is usu­ally over very quickly but the burn can last longer. How­ever, a flash burn can also cause blis­ters.

“Flash burns are usu­ally associated with ex­plo­sions.”
