A three-month-old baby boy is recovering in hospital after allegedly spontaneously catching fire - for the fourth time.
Rahul, was admitted for treatment of ten degree burns at an intensive care unit in Chennai, India last week, and doctors at the hospital say he suffers from 'spontaneous human combustion'. Medical staff alleges that - for the fourth time in his short life - Rahul has burst into flames with no external source of ignition. 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.

Spontaneous human combustion is an interesting topic, and hopefully the tests being carried out on the baby will lead to some insight on the subject. More importantly, I hope the doctors can confirm that it was some biological phenomenon and not an act of malice by the child's parents. The hospital's burn specialist claims spontaneous human combustion is a hoax theory. The family's community has also ostracized them, assuming the parents have deliberately set fire to the child.

Either way, it is a tragic ordeal that this child has to endure, and hopefully justice will be served if warranted.
