A 30-year old patient had released gas during surgery which allegedly sparked a fire, causing herself to be seriously burnt.

The incident happened in the Shinjuku Ward of the university hospital in Tokyo on April 15 as reported by Straits Times.

The female patient was undergoing an operation which involved applying laser to her cervix, the lower part of the uterus.

While she was having her surgical procedure done, the patient apparently farted. With the laser, this sparked a fire which burnt her waist, hips and legs.

Recent reports have revealed there were no flammable materials present during the surgery.

“When the patient’s intestinal gas leaked into the space of the operation (room), it ignited with the irradiation of the laser, and the burning spread, eventually reaching the surgical drape and causing the fire,” the report said.

It’s not surprising that farts can ignite flames as our flatulence contain hydrogen sulfide that is combustible.
