Liam's friend, Andy Samuels, reportedly suffered 20 percent burns to his chest, arms and legs when the gas lantern he was lighting exploded.
Andy's stepfather, Matthew Baker, told The Mirror: "We are so grateful to Liam because he saved his life. The lantern just exploded as Andy was lighting it and it took the full force of the flames. Liam helped him by beating out the flames and dousing him with water. He acted quickly and swiftly."
