  • A man in a business suit doused himself with gasoline and tried to set himself on fire in front of the Exxon Building in downtown Houston Friday afternoon, reports KHOU.com.

    The incident happened during rush hour and witnesses claim that he doused himself until he was soaking wet and attempted to set himself on fire with a lighter, but was stopped in time.

    Police officers shielded the man from view and hosed him off with water from a firetruck before taking him to the hospital for evaluation.

    “He was trying to use the lighter and the officers were trying so hard,” said witness Maria Gonzalez to the Houston Press.

    Cory Garcia, a web editor from the Houston Press, a block away, snapped photos of the man cuffed and on his knees.

    1. This type of suicide went out with that Buddhist Monk lighting himself up during the Vietnam War
      I have a feeling he would have had second thoughts if those flames had got going
