To relieve the burns, Mason dove into a nearby river, but he came out with scorched skin. Both actions ultimately made his health worse. The youngster is in great danger of infection from the river water and had a T-shaped third-degree burn on his back from yanking off the flaming garment.

He was taken by ambulance to the UNC Burn Center. With burns covering 76% of his body. For skin grafts, Mason has already had several procedures. Dark told the publication that watching her son’s skin gradually mend is like sowing a lawn. The boy is a very competitive football player and track runner.
