Mother who has been left with her lip stuck to her chest for 15 years after horrific workplace fire


A mother-of-three has spent 15 years with her lip stuck to her chest after she avoided medical treatment following a fire in her former workplace.

Leonor Niusa, 43, worked at a farm in Zamboanga City, the Philippines, when the candle she used as a source of light set a gasoline storage room ablaze.

She escaped the fire but horrific burns left across her face and body went untreated as her family feared they could not afford medical help.

Leonor Niusa, 43, worked at a farm in Zamboanga City, the Philippines, when the candle she used as a source of light set a gasoline storage room ablaze.

And as her burns healed her lips were left attached to her chest.

Her injuries now mean her movements are limited and since the accident she has not been able to find permanent work.

Instead Leonor and her young son travel through various towns asking for donations.

The pair were seen by Justin Quiban, who gave them food and water after they were seen walking around his neighborhood.

And locals are now hoping to raise money for a relatively straight-forward operation to remove her mouth from her chest so she can work again.

My view: It's so sad that for 15 years even her country's government didn't help her, there has to be a plastic surgeon somewhere that could help change her life . It seems the company she worked for completely got away from taking responsibility.
