Video shows man set himself on fire near White House

Video shows man set himself on fire near White House

"Sgt. Eduardo Delgado, a spokesman for the U.S. Park Police, said the man was in critical condition".

It was the second such incident since 12 April, when a man in a wheelchair-type electric scooter lit his jacket on fire outside the White House fence. The Secret Service tweeted the information shortly after it happened.




The saddest thing I've ever seen.

"Secret Service personnel are on scene assisting [National Park Service] and [U.S. Park Police] in rendering first aid", the Secret Service said. Another person, Krisjan Berzins, shared an eyewitness report on Twitter, writing, "According to my daughter...she just saw a person that was on fire running across the White House lawn". The video shows what appears to be a fire extinguisher used on the fire. "Please pray for their soul". That man suffered non-life-threatening injuries. He was arrested and taken to a hospital.
