This post deals with domestic violence and may be distressing for some readers.
At 17 years old, Kyesha Finemore’s ex-boyfriend doused her in petrol and set her alight.
The cruel attack left Kyesha with serious burns to 21 per cent of her body – including her arms, legs and upper body.
The Brisbane girl’s injuries were so severe, she had to be placed into an induced coma for 24 hours and undergo three skingrafts.
For months, Kyesha and her boyfriend Brae Lewis, also 17, had multiple violent fights – including a previous failed attempt to light Kyesha on fire.
In the lead up to the attack, Kyesha said she was sitting in her car outside their home in Marsden, Queensland.
"We started arguing and I pushed him and he pushed me, he sat down in the car with his legs out of the car," she said.
"And I was standing at the end of the door and we were arguing and he threw the petrol at me and as he threw it he came around with the lighter and he lit it."
Kyesha lit alight instantly, falling into a bin as she attempted to put out the flames.
