A 25-year-old chef has died after falling into a vat of boiling soup at a wedding hall in Iraq, according to reports. The incident happened on June 22 at Hazel Hall, a large wedding venue in the northern Iraqi district of Zakho, where the man was preparing for a large feast. The victim, Issa Ismail, was cooking a giant pot of chicken soup when he slipped and fell in.
Ismail suffered third-degree burns on 70 per cent of his body and was taken to hospital. He died five days later.
