This why I don't light candles anymore, especially on a birthday cake. Hell, I'm even hesitant when I light the menorah on Hanukkah!
According to the NY Post:
A Utah mom’s birthday celebration turned disastrous after she accidentally set her hair alight while trying to extinguish the candles on her cake. Footage of the b-day backfire is currently igniting the internet.
“I saw my whole life flash in front of my eyes,” Ana Oosterhouse told Kennedy News. “It was a very surreal experience and happened so quickly.” The fiery fiasco was sparked last month while the mom of six was hosting a joint birthday party for her and her 7-year-old son, Hunter.
The 34-year-old woman and her son can be seen sitting before two cakes while family and friends serenade them with the birthday song. Things go south, however, when the b-day girl bends over to blow out the candles, whereupon her hair inadvertently dips into the flames and catches fire like a Molotov lock-tail. The clip ends abruptly with half of Oosterhouse’s hair going up in flame while onlookers scream in panic.
Luckily everyone is ok with just some minor injuries.
