Bar­be­cue burns

A BUND­ABERG paramedic has is­sued a timely re­minder for peo­ple to ex­er­cise cau­tion this bar­be­cue sea­son, af­ter two peo­ple burned their hands on Satur­day af­ter­noon.

About 2pm Queens­land Am­bu­lance Ser­vice re­sponded to re­ports of a burn at Bar­gara. It was re­ported the pa­tient, a 34-year-old woman, tripped and put her hand on a bar­be­cue in an at­tempt to catch her fall.

She was as­sessed at the scene be­fore be­ing taken via am­bu­lance to Bund­aberg Hospi­tal.

About four hours later, paramedics re­sponded to a sim­i­lar call, also in Bar­gara. This time, a 15-year-old male re­port­edly burnt his hand af­ter ac­ci­den­tally touch­ing a bar­be­cue. He was treated at his home for a mi­nor burn and left in the care of his par­ents about 6pm.

“It’s a timely re­minder that in bar­be­cue sea­son, peo­ple need to act safely around the bar­be­cue and make sure there’s no trip haz­ards and things like that,” QAS senior oper­a­tions man­ager Martin Kelly told the NewsMail. “Of­ten peo­ple cook some­thing, close it up, and then peo­ple touch it af­ter, so try to keep peo­ple away from the bar­be­cue un­til it’s com­pletely cooled.”
