MASHHAD - The health condition of Seyyed Saeed Virani, a self-giving fire fighter who got seriously injured in a firefighting operation on Tuesday in Mashhad, shows signs of improvement.
Hossein Khakpour, the head of the Mashhad Fire Department Public Relations, told IRNA on Wednesday that the 27-year-old fireman courageously saved the life of a young teenager trapped in fire in a three-story building while he didn’t quite manage to escape the raging flames of the building.
Saeed has suffered a third-degree burn on the face and second-degree burns on his back, shoulders and hands, recounted Khakpour.
Khakpour added that the heroic fireman is currently receiving treatment at the Imam Reza Hospital burn center in Mashhad.
According to Mayo Clinic the three classifications of burns are:
1st degree burn: The least serious burn in which only the outer layer of skin is burned, but not all the way through.
2nd degree burn: When the first layer of skin has been burned through and the second layer of skin (dermis) also is burned.
3rd degree burn: The most serious burns involve all layers of the skin and cause permanent tissue damage. Fat, muscle and even bone may be affected. Areas may be charred black or appear dry and white. Difficulty inhaling and exhaling, carbon monoxide poisoning, or other toxic effects may occur if smoke inhalation accompanies the burn.
