Isanti County explosion survivor describes her escape and her recovery

“It makes everything more difficult when there’s an explosion involved in a fire,” said Dr. Jon Gayken with the Hennepin Healthcare Burn Center.  Hennepin Healthcare is hosting the Midwest Burn Conference this week to share information about complex cases like Zdenek’s.

Dr. Gayken says cases like this can often involve injuries beyond the skin.

“Any time there is an explosion, you can have injury to your lungs and internal organs which goes with normal trauma,” he said.
