A South Punta Gorda man severely burned during a New Year’s Day mobile home fire is expected to recover from his injuries but will face a lengthy rehabilitation process, according to family members, who said he remains in an induced coma in Tampa General Hospital’s burn unit.

Charlie Lau, 68, was found unconscious by Punta Gorda and Charlotte County fire personnel around 5:30 a.m. on New Year’s Day inside his trailer in the 11200 block of Tamiami Trail, having suffered burns to his head and arms, along with respiratory issues due to heavy smoke from the fire.
