A Georgia man accidentally set his wife on fire at a gas station.
Surveillance footage captured the entire incident go down. Austin Dawkins, 37, and his wife Jessica, 30, were refueling at a local gas station when Austin began playing with a cigarette lighter near his truck’s gas tank.
The fuel suddenly ignited, and flames quickly engulfed Jessica, who was sent running for her life on October 16. She sustained second and third-degree burns from head to toe and was flown to a burn unit in Atlanta. She has since been released.
Austin, who suffered minor burn injuries, was charged with misdemeanor reckless conduct. If convicted, he could spend up to a year behind bars. Watch the incident go down below.
