We put pork chops in our LX 60 [pressure cooker] like a lot of times before. The timer goes off we release the pressure and wait a few minutes like usual. My daughter's boyfriend goes to take the lid off and the lid blows and and he is now suffering 2nd degree burns to the arms,hand, chest and stomach. It was like a bomb steam and hot scalding water blew all over him. He was rushed to the hospital by ambulance where they treated him sent him Monday to March 30,2020 to Children’s hospital to the burn center to be scrapped and scrubbed from the extensive burns.
