As I Lay Dying’s Tim Lambesis Hospitalized After Burn Accident
UPDATE: Tim Lambesis has offered an update after recently receiving burns on 25 percent of his body due to a bonfire incident. His new posting reads: "The recovery from these burns has been the most painful experience of my life, but I’m told I will eventually have a full recovery. I have to remember that on the tough days and be grateful I have the chance to be back to doing what I love again soon, because that is not the case for everyone in the burn center. And thank you to @brennandunlap for sending me these photos he took which remind me that I will one day be back on stage again."
Apparently, the frontman had an accident as he was tending to a bonfire. He recalled the incident in a post on his Instagram.
"The entire gas cap fell off when trying to use a little from the trickle tip to get a bonfire started. Gas got all over my clothes and I ended up burning 25% of my body," the singer wrote.
"I’ve been in the hospital since Saturday night, and I will be here for a couple more weeks most likely. Today’s surgery is to remove the remaining dead skin that we were unable to scrub off during dressing changes this week," he continued. "It will be for the best so that we won’t have to scrub so hard during dressing changes, and that is a big relief for me. I am extremely thankful for the Burns center workers who are taking care of me."
