London, Dec. 29 (TNS): A man died after he burst into flames on a street in England, with the incident coming two weeks after an incident of the same nature took place, according to British media.
Daniel Lingwood, a resident of Hull, looked out of his window to see flames across the road. He rushed outside to help the victim, who has not been identified.
“There were some women going round to get buckets of water to chuck over him, but I have done first aid before and I knew that would be bad for his skin, so me and another bloke tried to roll him on the ground to put the fire out,” Lingwood said.
Detective Superintendent Dave Wood, a local policeman, said emergency services were called just after 8pm following reports of a man on fire. According to the Hull Daily Mail, the man was unable to be saved and died at the scene.
Police are currently appealing for witnesses. The circumstances around why the man was set alight remains unknown, but Wood has said the police are not currently looking for anyone in connection with the incident.
