Well, this is an interesting story. Here we have parents from a small village in India who are claiming that their baby mysteriously burst into flames on 4 separate occasions. They vehemently deny being the cause of this happening but it seems doctors may be getting a little suspicious.

The village is said to have been dealing with mysterious fires that could be caused by phosphorous cow dung which is used for building material and has a very low ignition point.

I really don't know what to make of this other than I feel bad for this kid.

What are your thoughts?

Doctors there are investigating the possibility that the infant, named Rahul, has suffered from spontaneous human combustion. They have also examined the child for a host of other medical conditions, as well as possible child abuse.

Multiple medical tests have given no indication that the baby could catch fire without an ignition source, according to the Times of India.

“We are in a dilemma and haven’t come to any conclusion,” Dr. Narayan Babu, head of pediatrics at Kilpauk Medical Hospital, told the New York Times. “The parents have held that the child burned instantaneously without any provocation. We are carrying out numerous tests. We are not saying it is SHC until all investigations are complete.”
