UNH students burned when pipe bursts


Three female students at the University of New Hampshire were burned Saturday afternoon after a hot water pipe burst outside a residence hall in Durham, N.H., a spokeswoman said. The injuries, believed to be third-degree burns on the women’s feet, occurred around 2:30 p.m. as they fled from Hunter Hall, a three-story dormitory that houses about 115 students, spokeswoman Erika Mantz said. Mantz said the injured students were taken to local hospitals, and later transferred to Boston hospitals. The hot water damaged four rooms and a small section of the first-floor hallway, Mantz said.
