Axel Schylstrom Burning Accident

Ten years ago, Axel Schylström became the victim of a burning accident in 2012, when he was 19.

He was involved in a serious train accident that left him with third-degree burns and extensive scars. Over 70% of his body (including half of his face) was burned due to electricity volt. Schylström has shared about doing a stupid thing when he was a teenager.

Well, he climbed atop a train in Sweden and came into contact with power lines that sent 16,000 volts of electricity through his body.

The horrible incident left him to fight for his life in the hospital and also led him to recall everything he has gone through in the form of scars. He went through over 50 operations and was admitted for about a year in the hospital.

Schylström revealed that he was very confident and believed himself to be the coolest guy ever and felt like he owned the world before the accident. But, all of a sudden, that all changed after the accident. The cool and popular guy with confidence and looks lost all of that.

He also stated that this burn incident made him feel so ashamed of himself that he did not want to go outside, and he didn’t want to see his face in the mirror.


The good part is he gradually managed to overcome his trauma. It is found that he was electrocuted while subway-surfing, thus suffering third-degree burns over 70 percent of his body, 

As per the artist, he had a hard time having to accept all his burning state in the initial phase. Though it took some time, he learned to love himself again in the end.
