GRANTS PASS , Ore., May 30 (UPI) -- An Oregon man who had been burned with hot oil ran into a 7-Eleven in Grants Pass and used some Hawaiian Punch Slurpees to treat his burns and cool himself off.

According to the Grants Pass Daily Courier, the man entered the store while being chased by two other people, one of them possibly armed with a bat.

Store clerk Charlie Bentley kept the individuals who were chasing the man out of the store so he could fill his shirt with Slurpee goodness without being disturbed.

The man soothed his skin with the icy beverage before being taken to a Medford medical center.

An investigation revealed that the chase likely began during a dispute between two neighbors that ended with two people being burned with hot oil. The other burn victim, a woman, did not require medical treatment.
