TWO men were rushed to hospital after suffering serious flash burns after the fuel tank of a van exploded in Shipston.
A volunteer community first responder (CFR) treated two men in Gerrards Road shortly after 8pm on Thursday.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “A 57-year-old man suffered serious flash burns to his torso and legs whilst a 21-year-old man sustained burns to his hands and arms as well as other superficial burns to his body.
“The men’s wounds were carefully covered with cooling burns dressings and were given pain relief to help ease their extreme discomfort.
“Both men were taken by land ambulance on blue lights to the specialist burns centre at Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham for onward emergency care.”
