MANITOWOC, Wis. – A 14-year-old boy suffered burns to more than a quarter of his body after playing what authorities describe as a blowtorch game.
Manitowoc Fire Captain Mark Rusboldt says the boy and another teen were using spray cans as blowtorches. The 14-year-old was burned on his back, head, face, arms and hands. The other teen was not injured.
The burned boy was hospitalized Saturday at Columbia St. Mary's Hospital in Milwaukee.
