The woman was taken to Royal Adelaide Hospital with severe burns to her face.

Her husband, who was injured while carrying his wife to safety, was taken to hospital with minor burns.

It is understood the woman who was volunteering at the barbecue fainted and fell, causing the gas bottle to tip over.

The barbecue was run by the SA Maritime Rescue Squadron, a major port authority.

The event is held annually by the agency every Saturday by various community groups.

The man who was taken to the hospital is a volunteer with the Squad.
