fire pitRAYMOND, ME — Timothy Small died after he fell into a fire pit, seriously burning over half is body, then refusing to seek medical help.

On Friday night, Small was with friends drinking around a rock-lined fire pit in his backyard. By 2 a.m. Saturday, he was alone and somehow managed to fall into the fire.

Although he suffered serious burns to 60 percent of his body, Smalls didn’t think it was worth seeking medical treatment.

““Small managed to stagger into his home, refused medical attention and went to bed,” according to Maine Department of Public Safety spokesman Stephen McCausland. His friends ended up calling an ambulance for him several hours later.

Small was taken to the Maine Medical Center in Portland before being transferred to Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston. He would die there Sunday evening.

This brings up one of the most horrifying stories I have ever written on the site, from five years ago. It happened in Arizona where a 45-year-old man and his cousin were drinking while  preparing a 3-foot deep fire pit to roast a pig.

The guy somehow fell-face first into the fire pit and became wedged inside it. His cousin was unable to pull him out so he attempted to douse the fire with a garden hose. So not only did the poor schmuck experience having his head stuck in a fire, he also got steamed.

It took several police officers to get the man out of the pit he was wedged in, but he was already dead. The man’s cousin was so traumatized by what had happened, he was taken to the hospital for treatment.
