Jasur Khamdamov Before The Accident

The teen suffered third degree burns over 98 percent of his body and when admitted to hospital doctors said he had little chance of surviving the ordeal.Marina Brazol, head of the burns unit in St. Petersburg, said in the Russia Today report,

“The burn was supercritical, an extensive and deep burn. There is an expression, ‘a condition incompatible with life’. Well, this burn was so extensive it was a miracle he survived,”

It’s been a year since the accident and Khamdamov continues to amaze his doctors. He is beginning to use his hands again but is still recovering from his facial disfigurement. He recalls,

“After four months, I grew very weak. I began to think I would die and that all my efforts were in vain. Sometimes I wanted to give up. But now I’ve pulled myself together. Although it’s hard to see people’s reaction to my face - when they pass by and stare back at me.”

At a recent checkup, the teen was told he’ll eventually have plastic surgery - but he needs further skin transplants first. Much of his skin was so badly burnt; the lower ‘derma’ layer was damaged beyond repair. Scientist at the Cell Research Laboratory in St. Petersburg still believe he can make a full recovery and are using frozen skin cells from cosmetic clinics to grow the teen some new derma.
