4 hurt in oil-vat accident at Hanover Tomato Festival | Richmond Times-Dispatch.

An unusual accident hospitalized four people at the Hanover Tomato Festival in Hanover, Virginia last Saturday.

About 12:30 a food vendor employee tripped and knocked over a vat of extremely hot oil used to make funnel-cakes and the oil spilled on that employee and three other people. Two of the workers had second-degree burns over 30 percent of their bodies and were transported by helicopter to VCU Medical Center.

Luckily for the victims, the helicopters were already at the festival and were on the ground within five minutes to transport the victims.

Two other people had burns on their extremities and were taken by ambulance to VCU Medical Center.
