Jay Leno’s burn injuries have been visible when he flashed a peace signal to followers exterior a fuel station in Pasadena, California, on Nov. 22, only one day after the previous “Tonight Show” host completed a 10-day keep at a Los Angeles facility the place he was handled for third-degree burns.
The 72-year-old comic’s face, palms and wrists confirmed broken pores and skin from the burns, which he sustained after a gas fire ignited in the garage of his Los Angeles-area home on Nov. 12.
A big gash might be seen on the within of Leno’s left arm.
On Nov. 16, Dr. Peter Grossman — the director of the Grossman Burn Center in West Hills Hospital, the place Leno was handled — advised NBC News afterward that Leno suffered “relatively serious” burns to “roughly 7% of his physique,(*1*) and “very friendly.”
TODAY reported that Leno also underwent hyperbaric oxygen therapy, a medical treatment that hastens the healing process for burns and other conditions, during his stay.
Leno was released from the facility on Nov. 21, and according to Grossman, will continue to receive follow-up care for his burns.
A source close to Leno, an avid car collector, told NBC News the comedian was fixing a clogged fuel line on his 1907 White Steam Car when the gasoline fire erupted.
Leno confirmed that he had been injured in a statement on Nov. 14. “I got some serious burns from a gasoline fire,” the longtime TV host said in the statement. “I am OK. Just need a week or two to get back on my feet.”
