There’s been a case of spontaneous human combustion reported in Germany.
The middle-aged woman was sitting on a park bench when, apparently, she was suddenly engulged in flames. The original article says this:
According to the Flensburger Tagesblatt and The Local, fire and smoke emerged from the woman, who is believed to be in her 40s and originally from Mauritius, as she sat on a bench in Flensburg, northern Germany…Witnesses at the scene told local media the woman “did not say anything” as the flames engulfed her.
Authorities have, so far, found no evidence of foul play.
There was a case of spontaneous human combustion in 2013. It was eventually explained away as an accidental death, though there was little evidence to support the hypothesis. They say that man died of a heart attack and fell on top of his cigarette. There, his body burned in a smouldering pile for 10 hours without catching the rest of his house on fire.
Not likely, but it’s the best they could come up with.
They dare not consider other possibilities. Consequently, their conclusions remain questionable.
