Mother Warns Others To Throw Out Common House Appliance After Freak Accident

Cassie Hodges and her partner Mark need a quick dinner option so they tossed some soup in their pressure cooker, hit the “soup” option and let it do its thing. Hodges is thankful that her three children were in another room when she went to help Mark retrieve the cooked soup.

"I walked back into the kitchen and Mark let the pressure release valve off, and the steam came out the top as normal,” she recalls, according to Life Aspire. “Then I heard a 'click,' suddenly I knew the lid unlocked. The next minute I was hit with something. The lid had unlocked and, because it hadn't finished releasing the pressure, the lid flew off and the entire contents hit me like as if someone chucked a bucket of water at me.”

That’s when the horror began.

“The noise of it was a loud sizzle,” she said. “I immediately screamed. My partner was holding his stomach and he pulled his arm back and his skin was all peeled off. I removed my singlet and ran to the shower, we called the ambulance."

Doctors at the hospital told Hodges that 12% of her body was burned and it would take weeks for her to get healthy skin back.

"I have severe burns to majority of both my arms my chest and my stomach,” she explains. “My daughter was in shock and was screaming in fear while watching me scream in fear, as well.”

The recovery as incredibly painful for her, as it was for Mark.

"I will be okay, but I want to share my story. These pressure cookers are not safe! I want the one I used recalled and I want people to be aware of the dangers.”
