A young woman, Courtney Waldon, enjoying a peaceful evening with her fiancee was a victim of a fire accident a result of a gasoline explosion which burned her face and scarred her for life.
There is ancient link between man and fire. For ancient man, fire provided warmth, protection from wild animals, light in the dark wilderness, and a place to cook food.
The flames of fire can inspire legendary tales, incite uplifting discussion, and build camaraderie among the men and women circled around them.
Also, there’s nothing more romantic and relaxing than cuddling up to your partner next to a warm camp fire.
A cold night spent huddled around a campfire with family and friends are some of the best times one can imagine.
Whether you’re telling ghost stories or just trying to blow off some steam after a long week of work, there’s just something magnetic about open flame that attracts us.
But with that said, there’s much room for error when you’re sitting around an open flame. In fact, one woman’s life was turned upside down after her husband’s careless mistake left her seriously injured and alone.
This is the case of Courtney Waldon, whom after two months of marriage was enjoying the warm embrace of her husband Mitch around a campfire.
As the fire began to die out, Mitch made the bad decision to throw gasoline on it and In a matter of seconds, Courtney went up in flames, with fire burning her hands and face.
she suffered severe burns all over her face and 40 percent of her body, forcing her to spend nearly two months in the hospital.
After 20 surgeries and almost $2 million in medical bills, Courtney was dealt another devastating blow when Mitch decided to leave her.
According to her, Mitch declared that he couldn’t handle her anymore following the accident before leaving without even so much as an apology.
Mitch, on the other hand, says he has nothing to apologize for and insists that he left his wife after she threatened to shoot him, an accusation Courtney vehemently denies.
As Courtney continues to undergo therapy to recover from her injuries, she’s making the brave choice to look ahead to the best future possible for her and her child instead of dwelling on her former partner’s harsh decision. We wish her all the best!
