If there’s one thing soccer fans love, it’s soccer. If there’s another thing soccer fans love, it’s flares.
Lighting up a match like it’s the Fourth of July is a basically a rite on the road to becoming a real supporter of your club. But despite their ubiquitous nature, flares are still dangerous.
A fan of Polish side Zaglebie Lubin and a security guard teamed up to prove that point over the weekend.
The official sprayed the guy with pepper spray in an attempt to keep him from climbing over a security gate. Unfortunately, pepper spray is flammable.
Against all odds, reports are that the human inferno escaped significant injury.
