WORCESTER, MA – A 71-year-old woman died after she fell into a fire pit in her backyard.

Jacqueline Cardinal was alone in her backyard last night when she reportedly fell into a fire pit. Her daughter’s husband found her 10 minutes later and called for help.

Unfortunately, she was so badly burned that there was nothing that could be done to save her and she was pronounced dead at the scene.

According to police, her death is being treated as an accident.

Cardinal was the mother of two and also raised four foster children with her late husband.

“She is the most wonderful woman there is,” her daughter said. “There isn’t anybody who would say anything different.”

While I was typing this up, I got a strange sense of déjà vu. I did a quick search on the site and sure enough, in 2015 I reported on a woman in her 70s dying after also falling into a fire pit.

We also have multiple instances of fire pit related deaths, including a baby dying after being dropped int one.

But as I stated in some of those previous articles, no fire pit related death I have read comes close to being as horrifying as what happened to a 45-year-old man back in 2010.

This poor guy was preparing for a New Year’s block party and had dug a 3-foot deep fire pit to roast a pig. He somehow fell face-first into the fire pit and became wedged. His family tied helping the poor guy by turning a water hose on the flames and inadvertently steamed him as well.
