  1. Presence of mind is the key to safe handling of all gas-operated equipment inside or outside the kitchen. Let’s hope that no lives are lost and that the injured will get a speedy recovery. The 22-year old must not be harshly criticised; she is certainly suffering enough for her unwanted error.
