Eventually, she was accidentally dropped into the boiling water, badly scalding her legs and feet.

The woman was later brought to the hospital and received treatment for weeks because of the burns. A police offer said:

“For reasons unknown so far the young woman’s legs fell into the cauldron and the 18-year-old sustained severe injuries to her legs.”

She added that even if it’s a joke that went wrong, the people involved, particularly those who dropped the woman into boiling water may face prosecution.

Meanwhile, the organizers of the event are being criticized for posting photos of the carnival parade on Facebook without saying anything about the poor woman’s injuries and ordeal. Because of the incident, the city government is considering canceling the even permanently. The parade, which was organized by the “Hexenzunft Eppingen” or Witch Corporation Eppingen, has been celebrated since 2003.
