On October 25, Bryan Aparicio and his girlfriend Su were among the victims caught in the middle of a burning inferno that shut down I-95 in Delray Beach.
Colleagues say Aparicio is a firefighter with Broward Sheriff Fire Rescue, assigned to Station 10 at Fort Lauderdale Hollywood International Airport.
The couple was in an Uber riding northbound on I-95 when another car veered into the path of a fuel tanker, causing that tanker to ignite and overturn. Bryan was able to rescue himself and extricate his girlfriend through the rear window of the fully involved vehicle. Bryan was transported to Delray Medical by ground and his girlfriend was flown to Jackson, both in critical condition with severe burn injuries. As a result, Bryan suffered second and third-degree burns to his face, head, and arms. Bryan's girlfriend suffered second and third-degree burns on both of her legs and hands.
As you could probably imagine, Bryan & Su will have a long road to recovery.
