AUSTRALIA – In another horrifying incident, a Melbourne man has sustained life-threatening injuries after setting himself and his car on fire in front of diners while screaming about Victoria’s COVID-19 vaccine mandates.
The man parked his car near Church Street in the suburb of Richmond at around 8 pm on New Year’s Day when according to eyewitnesses, he then stepped out of his silver MG3 hatchback and was engulfed in flames as he was heard screaming about vaccine mandates.
Police officers and firefighters rushed to put out the flames with the help of five witnesses. The man in question was then transported to a hospital where he is currently fighting for his life.
Lydia O’Connor, a distressed witness of the incident told the Herald Sun:
“His skin was burning. He was on fire. His skin is stuck to [my] shirt.
He was off his face screaming about the mandates. He was screaming ‘no vax ID‘.”
It marks the second incident in Victoria of a person trying to kill themself by self-immolation in protest of the state’s vaccine mandate as earlier last month a Melbourne woman poured petrol over her car while setting herself alight carrying a sign saying “NO ONE CARES, MANDATES ARE KILLING US”.
In November, Andrews introduced sweeping vaccine mandates for several key industries requiring workers to get the vaccine or show proof of medical exemption if they were to continue working on-site. An estimated one million Victorians were directly affected by the mandate.
