Former model Turia Pitt, 27, was taking part in an ultra marathon in Australia six years ago when she became trapped in a bush fire. She was severely burned on 64 percent of her body. The doctors said there was a chance she wouldn’t survive.

When the accident happened, Turia’s boyfriend Michael Hoskin quit his job as a police officer to take care of her. He has always stood by her side and protected her. Michael knew he was going nowhere.

Since the accident Turia has endured 200 operations. She lost seven fingers and had to spend over two years in recovery.

In 2020, she interviewed and talked about the horrific event when the flames trapped her during a 100km event in remote Western Australia.

“I remember seeing bits of my skin stuck to the rocks and spinifex,” Pitt said and explained that she felt a “bubbling feeling of panic.”

In 2015 Michael proposed to Turia with a diamond ring that he bought for her when she lay in intensive care four years ago. Michael says he proposed to her when they were on vacation in the Maldives.

“When Turia was in intensive care four years ago I bought a diamond ring,” Michael tells The Daily Mail.
