- But now it seems the pair are enjoying a new lease on life with their bundle of joy
Turia Pitt has been through the most! After a long road of suffering, it seems life is repaying the family with some happiness.
Pitt and her partner Micheal Hoskin took to social media to announce the birth of their second child together.
Briefly.co.za reported that 23-year-old Turia Pitt was a mining engineer when she joined a marathon in Western Australia in 2011. However, tragedy struck during the event when she found herself trapped in a bushfire. She suffered burns all over her body. After undergoing about 200 surgeries during her 5-month stay in the hospital, Turia came out without her fingers and thumb.
The model recounted the terrifying moment of her injuries, which saw 65% of her body covered in full-thickness burns:
"I was choppered out of the remote desert barely alive and wasn’t expected to survive. I lost seven of my fingers, spent over six months in hospital, underwent over 200 operations and spent two years in recovery."
But, nearly a decade after this harrowing ordeal, the couple have two new lives to celebrate and social media was full of love for them on this extraordinary journey:
