DAUGHTER’S MIRACLE SURVIVAL AFTER POTATO PAN BURNT 36% OF HER BODY - DOCS WARNED SHE WOULDN’T MAKE IT

In June 2023, Aimee da Cunha, 33, from Perth, Australia, was boiling potatoes on the stove when her two-year-old daughter, Hailey, knocked the pan of water over her. She suffered second degree burns to 36% of her body. Whilst she received treatment in hospital, Hailey struggled to breathe had to be put on life support. But when doctors tried waking her up, she was unresponsive. After various tests, they discovered Hailey had brain damage. Doctors told Aimee and her partner, Justin, 33, that Hailey would have no quality of life and would be in a vegetative state. They gave them the choice to withdraw care and let her pass naturally. But Aimee and Justin gave Hailey a chance at life and she underwent a tracheostomy surgery. She also endured two skin graft surgeries. Miraculously, Hailey started to improve each day and was eventually able to eat and breathe on her own. She has recently taken her first steps since her accident and is continuing to defy everything that the doctors said.
