nary a scratch, ive had this happen to me a few times and you rarely get burned. This was just a spray of steel, the shroud (bright orange thing) got clogged by the sand in the tap hole and when it filled with steel it blew the shroud off spraying steel. Liquid steel like in this situation does not stick to you it bounces off and you only get small burns if at all, Slag on the other hand hardens quickley and is very sticky and is what most people get burned by. You think this is impressive you should see a loss of containment in the slab that will get your heart pumping. Next time we get it on video i'll post it.
