Video: TV host sets magician's head on fire
It is unclear why the host put a highly flammable liquid on the man's head
Magician Wayne Houchin is recovering in a hospital after a Dominican Republic TV show host lit his head on fire.
According to a statement posted on Houchin’s Facebook page, Franklin Barazarte, host of “Approach the Stars,” poured a highly flammable liquid called Aqua De Florida on the magician during the show.
“[He] ignited it and intentionally dropped it on my head, setting me on fire,” the U.S. performer wrote. “I was not aware he was going to do this. This was not a stunt or part of an act - this was a criminal attack.”
