Healthy Partners, Fall 2021
Charles Lang, a retired welder, was helping a friend with a shop project
last fall when a piece of the metal he was heating with a torch fell inside
his work boot. “Before I could get my boot off, it had pretty well
cooked my right ankle,” Mr. Lang recalls. The burn became a deep
sore, causing Mr. Lang’s leg to become swollen and painful.
