Family suffers horrific burns after fireball meal in Marmaris restaurant
A British couple and their three children suffered second and third degree burns in a Marmaris restaurant
, after a bottle of alcohol a waiter was using to flambé their meal exploded.
Tony and Kirsty Barr were on holiday with their children celebrating their sixth wedding anniversary when a waiter at La Luna restaurant tried to flambé
a fish dish to celebrate the couple’s anniversary.
Chimneysweep Mr Barr was forced to dive 20 feet out of a window
to try and prevent the rest of the family from catching alight – only one child escaped the fireball, by hiding under the dining table.
The youngest child sustained horrific burns to her thighs after her pram caught on fire
– she had to be rescued by her 15-year-old sister, whose own arms and legs were already on fire.
Mr Barr sustained a perforated eardrum
and he and his wife suffered burns to their head, neck, arms and chest.
The couple and their family were uninsured and have been left with a £3,500 medical bill
, after Mr Barr had to spend five weeks in hospital
until he was deemed fit to travel home.
They are now considering legal action for the injuries
