Abbie Quinnen suffered third-degree burns after attempting a life-hack video

AJ Pritchard’s girlfriend, Abbie Quinnen, was badly burnt after she attempted to turn a glass bottle into a vase.

The 23-year-old professional dancer was attempting to copy a YouTube demonstration video when she was engulfed in flames after the glass bottle exploded, setting fire to her hair.

Quinnen took to Instagram to warn people to be extremely “careful” if they attempt to copy YouTube videos.

In the post, she said: “I am sad I have been absent in the last few weeks & haven’t posted much with AJ, we so desperately wanted to be able to share daily vlogs with you all but unfortunately I have had an accident.

“Whilst we were attempting to create a glass bottle into a vase from following a YouTube tutorial, it went terrible wrong and it resulted in me incurring injuries & burns requiring continuous hospital treatment over the past 7 weeks.

“I really need you all to be so careful with what you’re doing & if you are copying any YouTube videos. I will be ok! I love you all.”

“I also want to say a massive thank you to the nurses and doctors at the Chelsea and Westminster burns unit for their incredible care & treatment.”

A recent photo of the professional dancer showed her body covered in bandages after she was treated in hospital for her third-degree burns.

A spokesperson for Quinnen said in a statement: “Abbie has undergone surgery on her upper body and will continue to receive treatment.

“Abbie and AJ cannot thank all the nurses and doctors enough for their incredible care, support and expertise whilst being at Chelsea and Westminster Burns Unit and at Ealing Hospital.”
