Stuntman goes up in flames
Reuters News Service
SYDNEY, Australia - Sydney police patrolling near the Coral Sea Park in the seaside suburb of Maroubra spied a man on the roof of a toilet block douse himself with gasoline, set himself alight, climb onto a BMX bike and launch himself off the block.

Unfortunately, missing the pile of mattresses designed to break his fall wasn't his only problem. His clothes were on fire.

Police through a garbage bin full of water over him to douse his burning clothes.

The 39-year-old Sydney man suffered several fractures including a broken nose and broken wrist, as well as burns, and the loss of his BMX bike which police seized along with a can of gasoline and a lighter. He was taken to a hospital for surgery.
