Girl, 14, burnt in tanning salon

Post  Susan on Thu 19 Feb - 19:57



A health and safety investigation has been launched after a 14-year-old girl suffered burns over 70% of her body using an unstaffed tanning salon.

Kirsty McRae was put on a hospital drip after spending £4 for 19 minutes on a coin-operated sunbed on Monday.

Her mother Jill, from Barry Island, Vale of Glamorgan, said unstaffed salons posed "an enormous risk".

James Hadley, who owns Lextan, the salon which Kirsty used, said he was operating within the law.

Kirsty, who is on half-term, originally put £1 into a coin operated sunbed at Lextan, but felt she was not tanned enough, so paid another £3 for another 15 minutes.

No-one was at the salon to prevent her from using the beds or stop her from using the booth for as long as she did.

19 minutes did this???? I think she must have really sensitive skin to get this burnt in 19 minutes!

She must have had some tanning accelerant or other on her to have been burnt that much in that timescale.
But the sunbed itself might have been faulty, I doubt if high street ones such as that are monitored and checked as often as they should.

A very silly and a very lucky girl ... hopefully she's learned her lesson now.

Just get yourself some fake tan, Lancome make a lovely one, you only need to put it on twice a week or so, its handy andy. I've had dodgy freckles removed, I love the sun, but I'm very very careful in it now and wouldn't ever dream of using a sunbed and I'll advise my daughters when they're older to do the same.

Its just not worth it .....

Is that a price tag on her bra?
