A waitress in a restaurant in China got burns on her face after a large pot of boiling soup exploded as she tried to figure out a lighter a client had dropped.
Yunnan, a client at the Haidilao restaurant in Kunming, accidentally dropped his lighter into the hot pot, a traditional Chinese meal where pieces of meat and other ingredients are cooked in a large pot of soup at the table.
Footage of the terrifying accident shows the server trying to pick up the lighter with tablespoons when the scalding fluid burst and splashed on the waitress and the guests.

However, the sultry liquid suddenly burst out and splashed at the waitress and diners
Because the hot pot is roasted at the table by an electric stove, the temperature of the broth, often mixed with chili oil and other spices, can rise to 200 degrees Celsius (392 Fahrenheit).
The waitress and the male customer were immediately taken to the hospital for treatment, according to BTime.
The incident took place on May 15 and Haidilao said Tuesday that they were investigating the matter even further.

A Haidilao spokesperson told BTime that the accident happened when one of the customers at the table dropped the lighter in the broth while passing it on to his friend.
The client got light burns in his hand, she said, adding that the waitress is recovering well.
& # 39; We will implement additional training for our employees & # 39 ;, she added.

A similar incident occurred in Chongqing in February when a customer threw a lighter into a hot pot and caused an explosion.
Fortunately nobody was hurt.
