[News] S.H.E Selina burnt incident

[20101025]News report on S.H.E Selina burnt incident (credit:xuplHebe)

Seriously..... I didn't pay much attention to the news when it was out, since I assumed it was just a minor burnt. But as days goes by, more and more news surfaced and that got me curious as to how servere her burns was. She suffered 3rd degree burns and according to Wikipedia,

"Third-degree burns occur when the epidermis is lost with damage to the subcutaneous tissue. Burn victims will exhibit charring and extreme damage of the epidermis, and sometimes hard eschar will be present. Third-degree burns result in scarring and victims will also exhibit the loss of hair shafts and keratin. These burns may require grafting. These burns are not painful, as all the nerves have been damaged by the burn and are not sending pain signals; however, all third-degree burns are surrounded by first and second-degree burns, which are painful."

Looking at the news, it says that she need skin grafting.... Which is really serious.... They were gonna film a major exploding scene, but were totally not prepared for emergencies in case something happens during the filming. There was no firetruck on stand by, nor was there any explode rehearsals done before they filmed the scene and the actors weren't wearing fire-proof clothings either. And so, the explosion was set off too early, resulting in the actor/actress being caught in the whole explosion. The building was supposed to explode after the actor and actress exited the building, but it was triggered before they had a chance to exit the building....
Gosh.. And the news said that since there was no firetruck on standby, the crew could only use drinking water to extinguish the fire on Selina and the actor. Like WTH?!?! Sucha dangerous exploding scene with fuels, explosions and all and no precautions done?

The news made my heart ache and looking at Hebe, Ella and Selina's dad in the video, it makes me feel more so. I wonder how they're taking this (esp Selina's family). Damn sad since this kinda accident shouldn't happen and at least there shld be precautions done before filming. To think she was preparing to get married soon...

Hope she'll have a smooth operation and recovery.... Jia You, Selina!
