Severe burn quickly healed
Original in Spanish
I had only two days before I was to leave for Venezuela on a visit to my daughter, and there were many things to do before I left. Among them, I had to leave my apartment ready to be rented during the summer.
To speed up the defrosting of the freezer, I decided to use a steam machine. As I worked, I leaned on it heavily to melt the ice. A tube disconnected right where I was holding the machine, and a jet of pressurized steam, at a temperature of 248°F, hit the palm of my hand squarely. The impact was extremely painful.
