Jay Leno He was released from the hospital with severe burns following a petrol garage accident – and you can already tell how severe his injury was.
The former late-night host snapped a photo, which was captured and posted by the Grossman Burn Center, where JL has been receiving treatment for the past nine days. In it, he appears to be in good spirits alongside the facility staff…but there are noticeable scars on his face and hands.
Still, he’s so healthy that he’s been laid off…and GBC says her recovery has encouraged her. In a statement, the burn center said Jay will receive follow-up care at the outpatient facility, after suffering burns all over his upper body, including his chest.
They add, “Jay would like everyone to know how grateful he is for the care he has received, and is very grateful for all the well wishes. He is looking forward to spending Thanksgiving with his family and friends and wishes everyone a wonderful holiday.”
Well put in a hyperbaric chamberJL is said to have undergone a surgical excision and skin grafting…removing unhealthy tissue and allowing the wounds to heal.
Remember… this all started while Jay was working on one of his cars in his Burbank garage. While trying to unscrew the fuel line in a 1907 White Steam car, he was with gasoline that broke out into flames. Jai’s friend who was present saved his life.
