Warren on overcoming severe burns to make Lakeside World Championship debut in 2005: "Just qualifying for it was like winning it"
Warren discussed the incident in 2001 but a few years later, he made his debut which he admitted was like 'winning' the tournament.
"I spent two weeks in intensive care. I really thought it was over. When they came along and they showed me my actual burns, I just broke down, you always think of the worst but to be honest I spoke to the doctor and I asked him and he said it's going to take time and it did take time. I couldn't play darts for a long time," said Warren to the Golden Arrows series on the Inside the WDF podcast.
"It was a feud between the family. We'd only just buried my dad in November, this was December. This was a day before Christmas Eve and he was smashing the place up and I went down. The deep fat fryer had cooled down but he just picked it up and threw it over me."
"I didn't think nothing of it, I thought it was water but then I started burning. I remember the ambulance turning up and that was the last thing I can remember for about five days."
"Just qualifying for it was like winning it. For me to do that after what I'd been through."
