HELP Little Pippie after a freak braai-fire accident
It was a scene that played out at hundreds of thousands of South African homes: New Year's Eve, families and friends gathering round the braai to bring in 2012. This was the mood at the Kruger home, some two kilometers outside the Limpopo town of Ellisras/Lephalale. Two-year old Pippie was playing on the lawn, 6-month old baby brother, Arno was in their mother, Anice's arms. Dad Erwin was lighting the braai fire. He used a firelighting liquid. Then, the accident.
The bottle of liquid exploded in his hands. The force was so immense, that it bellowed all the way to little Pippie, still playing on the lawn nearby. Dad's hands were badly burnt, but it was Pippie who bore the brunt of the flames. She sustained 80% 3rd degree burns all over her angelic little face and body. It was a miracle that she survived. In fact, doctors at the Garden City Clinic burns unit in Brixton, Johannesburg say they've never seen a burn patient, that badly burnt and that young, survive. Pippie is still in that hospital, where she is slowly healing, with her mom, Anice constantly by her side and Dad, Erwin, commuting between the hospital and their home. This little girl has a long road ahead of her and the family needs all the support they can get.
