An Australian man was critically injured after he doused himself in gasoline and lit himself on fire in public on New Year’s Day after ranting against vaccines, according to local reports.


The gruesome act of self-immolation occurred in the Richmond section of Melbourne when the man poured the gasoline on himself and his vehicle while shouting expletives regarding the state of Victoria’s new COVID-19 vaccine mandate, according to the Herald Sun.


“His skin was burning. He was on fire,” a woman, who did not want to be identified, told the Herald Sun. “His skin is stuck to my shirt. He was just off his face intoxicated screaming about the vaccine mandates.”


A spokesperson for the hospital told the paper that the man was in critical but stable condition.
