USA: Abbey Alexander, the teenage American teacher badly injured in a Siem Reap LPG explosion has been airlifted back to the US.
Abbey is currently receiving treatment at UCHealth University of Colorado Hospital for third-degree burns over 30% of her body.
The U.S. Embassy helped them secure a flight to return to Denver.
“It was like road tripping in the back of someone’s minivan,” Mrs. Alexander said. “I had never been in a plane this small.”
Alexander is now in a critical condition at the UCHealth Burn and Frostbite Center, where she is expected to remain for two months. Doctors are optimistic she can make a full recovery.
The family plans to return to Cambodia.
