Burned opera fire-blower released from hospital
MAYWOOD, Ill. (AP) — A fire-blowing stilt-walker with the Lyric Opera of Chicago who was burned during a dress rehearsal has been released from the hospital.
Loyola University Medical Center says 24-year-old Wesley Daniel was released Thursday. Daniel was injured Monday, suffering second-degree burns on his neck. His doctor says the injuries are like a "deep sunburn" and should heal within two weeks.
The hospital released a picture of a Daniel. He is wearing bandages over his face, head and left hand and giving an "OK" sign.
His father says, "Wesley is in good spirits." Clifton Daniel says his son hasn't been able to give a cause for the accident.
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration visited the opera after the incident. The opera has said it is fully cooperating.
