He ran to the bathroom to wash the burn with cold water, but it didn’t help. «Then I looked at his chest — the skin was just hanging with her, and when I looked in the mirror, I saw that peeling off and the person», — told Kiland in an interview with WXIN.

Due to the evil jokes of friends, the teenager spent a week in hospital with burns of II degree. Now, the treatment continues at home. To fully healed, burnt chest, face and back, will take several months.
