mods do your thing

Hello

I just saw this on my local news

Wow a 3 month old baby has allegedly burst into flames for the fourth time in his life

He was admitted to an Indian hospital with ten degree burns where staff and doctors say he suffers from 'spontaneous human combustion'.


According to doctors Rahul may have caught fire due to the excretion of gases through his skin, which has led to him suffering burns on his chest and head.

‘The baby is stable and treatment is on for burn injuries and scars. Life-saving support systems are there for Rahul in the intensive care unit,’ said R. Narayana Babu, head of paediatrics at the hospital.


Ok I don't know what to think of this is'spontaneous human combustion' possible here or are his parents doing this to him some how.

For now they have been advised to keep the baby away from flammable substances and in a climate controlled room.


I really feel for the kid, whether or not his parents are doing it to him or he is actually just bursting into flames its gotta suck

Spontaneous combustion of people is occasionally heard of. I think they should look into adjusting the kids diet. The kid could be excreting ketones or other flammable substances. Sometimes spontaneous combustion without a flame source can occur also, if the person has some specific chemistry. It is extremely rare though.

Ten degree burns?

That's a first for me.

It's bad enough the infant has been treated for being on fire 4 times already, but what is more infuriating is this...


the baby will be under observation and may be discharged after two weeks depending on his condition



WTF is that about? Either this infant is the victim of Münchausen, or a very unusual case that needs to be closely monitored by the medical community.

You took that completely out of context you joker. But that would be kind of cool if his skin didn't have to suffer.

You never know, they may be able to create an ointment that keeps the skin from burning.

If the child could learn what makes it happen, what feelings he gets before it is going to happen, he could use that to his benefit.. . .

Marshmellow, Anyone?

Are you really going to keep making jokes about a baby that is probably being burned alive by the parents? Super edgy.

You are rotten! But very funny =) I call BS on this one tho. But I am still trying to find out if other humans simply combust multiples times without dying after the first episode.

I'm sorry, I couldn't help myself.

I don't believe it is the parents doing this.

I had read an article somewhere that said something about the gas coming out of the pours.

Then what, someone put the baby over a flame? I mean, I guess it's possible, the way the Indians eat and all.

Take a good look at the fire triangle.

It is much easier to get something to ignite than you would believe.
