Rocks Found At Trestles Beach Ignite In Woman's Pocket
Woman Put Rocks In Pocket After Her Children Picked Them Up From Beach
The 43-year old woman's children picked up the seven orange and green
rocks on Saturday at San Onofre State Beach, which is popular with
surfers and known locally as Trestles.
The rocks combusted and set the woman's shorts on fire and continued to
burn the wood floor of her Avenida Estrella house, according Capt. Marc
Stone of the Orange County Fire Authority.
The woman, whose name was not released, was hospitalized at Western
Medical Center in Santa Ana with third-degree burns to her right thigh
and knee, Stone said. He added that the victim "stopped, dropped and
rolled" in an effort to douse the flames, and her husband suffered
second-degree burns to his hands as he tried to help.
