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.”
ARTISTS Jamie Kirby and Jackson Hall were at it again yesterday, putting up the fourth piece of street art as part of Bundaberg’s Urban Art Trail initiative.
