Terry McCarty was just six years old when he was engulfed with flames after his brothers filled a bowl with kerosene, which was set alight and accidentally knocked on to him. After the accident, the 29-year-old from Hawthorne, Nevada, endured 58 operations as well as cruel taunts from bullies who called him Freddy Krueger, because of the scars on his face, body and arms. But Terry was determined to overcome the harrowing experience and bravely became a firefighter to face the fears that crippled his confidence for years.
