Ma­gi­cian burned on TV show

Austin American-Statesman - - THE SECOND FRONT -

An U.S. ma­gi­cian was re­cu­per­at­ing Sun­day in the Do­mini­can Repub­lic af­ter a lo­cal tele­vi­sion show host lit his head on fire with a flammable cologne. Wayne Houchin said he was re­ceiv­ing treat­ment for burns that doc­tors were cau­tiously op­ti­mistic would not re­sult in scars. Dur­ing a Nov. 26 ap­pear­ance on the Do­mini­can Repub­lic’s “Closer To The Stars” pro­gram, guest host Franklin Barazarte abruptly doused the U.S. ma­gi­cian’s head with a flammable cologne com­monly used in San­te­ria rit­u­als. It is un­clear why the TV host doused the ma­gi­cian’s head with the liq­uid and what ig­nited it.
