Burn victim Pippie Kruger is finally going home

JOHANNESBURG - Almost two years after being badly burnt at a barbecue fire, Pippie Kruger is finally going home.

The brave four-year-old girl spent the past few months in Johannesburg, recovering from her skin cloning and transplant procedures -- the first of its kind on South African soil.

Doctors say Pippie's progress has been remarkable.

The once badly burnt toddler is now a long-legged, curly-haired little girl who’s stolen the hearts of her doctors, therapists and the nation.

The rehab centre in Johannesburg has become a second home for Pippie.

Even after she and her mum Anice move back to Lephalale next week, she will still visit the centre once a month for treatment.
