Lacuna Coil’s Cristina Scabbia is currently recovering after suffering facial burns from some “boiling oil.” The incident happened while the singer was cooking fries in her kitchen.
Scabbia said the following:
“Basically, yesterday I was cooking some food, and I was using a small pan to fry some chips. And what happened is that I used something to grab some chips and put them somewhere else. And the utensil that I was using basically slipped off my fingers, moving the pan.
I did a movement like this and created a sort of a wave that went straight in my face. So it was pretty horrible, because there was a lot of… I got scared for a second, because, of course, the pain, the burning. I didn’t really know what the situation [was], because all you feel when you burn yourself is just the burn. So you don’t know what’s going on.
It’s red for a second, then it swells, then it goes down. And I didn’t know how the situation was, so I literally put my face underneath cold water — very cold water — and tried to wash the oil away. So I grabbed some soap very quickly without, of course, fractioning it too much. And I washed my face. And then I put it under water. And then I cut a few leaves from my aloe vera [plant] and I put them on the skin because aloe vera is amazing for burns.
Yesterday was horrible because it kept on burning; I didn’t know how to keep the burning down. I kept on my face a towel with water being really, really careful. It also got me on my hand.”
She went on to say that she is “very, very, very lucky” that the oil didn’t get in her eye. She also added:
“Many horrible things are happening at home because this is the place where you feel safe so you kind of let go all the precautions because you feel that you’re untouchable.”
