The South Dakota Woman was airlifted to a Minneapolis burn unit

KIMBALL, S.D. — A pregnant South Dakota woman has been airlifted to a Minneapolis burn unit after her stomach and legs were burned by a grease fire.

20-year-old Pam Bice of Kimball was burned Monday after she collided with her sister, who was trying to remove a burning pan from her home.

Bice’s sister had found the fire in her kitchen and grabbed the pan to take it outside when they ran into each other.

Bice, who is 33 weeks pregnant, says the fire made her pants melt onto her legs.

She’ll be hospitalized for about a week.
