A two-year-old boy who was badly injured in a Tulsa, OK house fire was flown to Shriners Burns Hospital in Galveston, Texas for treatment. Abigail Endreblado, a neighbor who saw the smoke from the fire, ran into the house to save the little boy who has second- and third-degree burns all over his body.
Tulsa firefighters, who got the call at around 11 a.m. on Thursday, are relieved Enrdeblado was not injured during the rescue, they told Newson6.com. The boy’s mother, who also suffered burns, also escaped the fire.
Although they don’t yet know how the fire at the home in the 5300 block of South Utica Avenue started, firefighters say they do know it began in the garage.
Shriners Burns Hospital in Galveston is one of 67 facilities in the U.S. designated by the American Burn Association and the American College of Surgeons Committee on Trauma as a verified pediatric burn care center.
