My dad is 74 and his retired hobby is playing with and restoring his fleet of old tractors. Well last Wednesday morning he was working on his 51 JD B that has developed a skip and started flooding this year he had it running earlier in the morning and was shut  off for a while when he went to take out one of the plugs while it was off and when he did gas that was in the cylinder burst into flames and burned him bad on the hands and stomach he was by himself and got the fire out his shirt off and went and sat on the porch and called 911 he said his hand being burned so bad he could hardly use phone. He was rushed to the big hospital UMass in Worcester Ma with 2nd and 3rd degree burns. This is the man that 2 years ago had his hip replaced and said the day he spent in the bed is the longest time he had done nothing. They do seem to have him on a crackheads dream of Ketamine and Fentinal and Demerol for the pain and he said it still hurts when he isn't sleeping   His skin graft surgery is scheduled for tomorrow morning they said 4-5 hrs  and I don't think they have given a recovery time yet of less than a month to 6 weeks  he has already told me to get rid of that tractor and he won't make anymore shows this summer. So as I sit here in the hospital listening to all these machines and trying to talk to dad when he is not sleeping I ask the extended Red Power family for a little thoughts do prayer  for my Dad for a quick recovery he has a few more tractors to rebuild still

Prayers sent. Gasoline burns are not fun at all. Any burn can be pretty serious and painful.

Hope for a safe, speedy a complete recovery for your Dad.

He's extremely lucky that he managed to get himself put out. In those circumstances, that type of fire could have been tough to put himself out.
