As noted on our annual Turkey tort posting, deep-fried turkey remains one of the main reasons for admissions in Emergency Rooms around the country. My friend who heads one of the largest Emergency Rooms in this area says that it is virtually all men with burn injuries. For those deep frying this holiday, here are a few cautionary tales.
We know a friend of one of our family members who not only had a fire, but torched his house. The main reason appears to be the failure to measure the oil (often first using fire to check the displacement level), which spills into the flame or heat source.
