Soaking in Cool Water

Just as a public service, not so much a "proper" blog post - do you know what to do if someone should get a serious burn, ch'v?

No, don't remove the item of clothing.

Immerse in cool (not cold) water for a LONG time, like two hours.

Hatzala must take a burn patient to the hospital.  This is not in the patient's best interests.  The best thing is long immersion in cool water.

I've read first hand accounts several times in which this mitigated the burn to such an extent that it seemed miraculous, with barely a mark.

Hashem yishmor.
