Washington D.C. just witnessed a recreation of the martyrdom at Saigon road.

UPDATE: U.S. Park Police have confirmed the man identified as Arnav Gupta has died of his self inflicted injuries.

Around 12:30 p.m. a man lit himself on fire in close proximity to the White House according to the secret service.

The terrifying spectacle took place at the Ellipse in downtown Washington, also known as “President’s Park.”

17-year-old Alina Berzins witnessed the horrifying spectacle while visiting the National Mall with family. She shared with CNBC the man “starts running, and then we saw him covered in flames.”

Secret Service spokesman Jeffrey Adams remarked on the matter stating that agency officers “responded in seconds” and managed to extinguish the living fire.

The individual was transported to the hospital with life-threatening injuries and burns covering 85 percent of his body. Further news on his condition has yet to be released.

  1. Considering the political environment in DC, better know as the swamp, I can understand how he possibly felt compelled to do this. At any rate, this is very sad that anyone could get this down and out.

  2. Which leads to the Darwin theory of survival of the fittest,…… looks like someone has been swimming in the shallow end of the gene pool. I do feel bad for his family though.
