Aurora, Colo – The parents of a Firestone woman are grateful for the care she is receiving in Colorado two weeks after an explosion at a gas station in Cambodia burned nearly a third of her body. Abbey is getting treatment at UCHealth University of Colorado Hospital.
“The roads were all closed so he tried to drive through the aisles of one of the outdoor markets,” Erin Alexander recalled from the UCHealth University of Colorado Hospital.
The family moved to Cambodia in January to teach various subjects. They vacationed in the country one Christmas and started planning their move a year in advance. Erin and her husband, Aaron, teach English online for companies based in China. Their daughter teaches kindergarten and preschool, and their son is a junior high math teacher.
