Spontaneous Human Combustion

A woman who was  found engulfed in flames on a park bench in Germany in what some are saying was a case of  spontaneous human combustion. 

The victim, a woman from Mauritius descent in her 40’s, was found consumed in flames at a playground in Flensburg, northern Germany on Monday. She is thought to have survived but is in a critical condition in hospital.

The Metro reports:

A horrified passerby tried to put out the blaze by beating it with his jacket, but she had already suffered severe burns all over her body.

She was rushed to a local hospital before being flown out to a specialist burns unit in Lübeck where she is fighting for her life, according to the Flensburger Tageblatt.

Some reports suggested she had died, but this could not be confirmed.

According to eyewitnesses, the unnamed woman ‘did not say anything’ or make a sound as the flames engulfed her.

‘The victim has lived in Flensburg for a long time and has family here,’ prosecutor Ulrike Stahlmann-Liebelt said.

And Otto Gosch, the Flensburg public prosecutor, added that they ‘have no evidence that points to a third party fault’.Spontaneous Human Combustion

However, as well as spontaneous human combustion, police are investigating the possibility of a suicide attempt.
