Turia Pitt, an Australian model and athlete, was competing in a marathon back in 2011 when she suddenly became trapped in a brush fire with no way out. Unable to escape, Pitt squeezed in between two rocks and tried to wait for the inferno to pass.
Pitt recalls the moment to ABC Australia, “It just got hotter and hotter and hotter and I couldn’t stand it anymore so I jumped up and tried to run and that’s when I got burned.”
She managed to run through the flames and survive. However, there was a deep cost.
