Wayne Houchin was burned during an appearance in support of the Curiosidades show in the Dominican Republic. He released the above picture and the following statement on his Twitter and Facebook:
Monday while appearing on a TV show in the Dominican Republic, the TV host took a handful of Aqua De Florida, ignited it and intentionally dropped it on my head, setting me on fire.
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. The fast actions of the rest of our Curiosidades team saved my life. The fire was put out and I was rushed to the emergency room. I have bad burns on my head, face, neck and right hand. I am in pain, but am recovering. I will update you on the situation when I can.
Houchin was most recently seen on Discovery Channel’s Breaking Magic. Aqua de Florida or Florida Water is a flammable cologne popular in Latin Countries.
Everyone at iTricks wishes Wayne a speedy recovery. We will bring you any possible updates as they become available.
