Polish Cyclist Spontaneously Combusts

 From Treehugger:

Cyclist spontaneously combustedApparently a Polish man, Mieczyslaw Jasinski, 55, caught fire while cycling. We don’t know how fast he was going, but he told doctors he smelt burning and looked down to see his trousers had caught fire. He jumped off his bike and rolled on the ground trying to douse the flames but suffered second degree burns to his legs, back and stomach.

“Passers-by spotted him lying at the side of the road in Koroszczyn, still smoking from the tattered remains of his trousers and groaning in pain.

A police spokesman said: ‘Witnesses said he was like a flaming human torch cycling along the road.'”
