MAN­I­TOBA MAN DIES AF­TER BE­ING COV­ERED IN HOT TAR

Calgary Herald - - CANADA -

Bradley Jack­son, 21, was haul­ing a load of hot tar from Win­nipeg into North Dakota when his rig went off the road, rup­tur­ing the tanker and send­ing the burn­ing liq­uid into the cab of the truck. With tar all over his body, he man­aged to crawl out of the semi to wait for help, said his girl­friend Donna-Joe Smith. He spent three days in a burn unit at a Minneapolis hos­pi­tal be­fore he died Satur­day. “He was a huge fighter,” Smith said. “He fought his lit­tle butt off to make sure that he could be around and he just got tired.”
